The Seagull Emilia Clarke stars!
Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is set to make her West End debut role in Anya Reiss’ adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. Directed by Jamie Lloyd, Reiss’ interpretation uses modern language to present a new take on this darkly comedic classic.
Nina is looking for a way out of her circumstances. Fame and fortune wouldn’t be too bad, either. There’s a writer longing for recognition, an actress fighting against time. The isolated countryside home seems to be a place where hopes and dreams are torn and tattered, hearts are broken and there is no place to turn.
When there is no where to turn you might just have to turn on each other.
