News: Further cast announced for The Seagull

The Lyric Hammersmith today announces further casting for Simon Stephens’s new version of Anton Chekhov’s highly renowned play, The Seagull, directed by Artistic Director Sean Holmes.

Unrequited love. Creative jealousy. Guns. Vodka. And Art.

Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens directed by Sean Holmes.

Switching effortlessly between the ridiculous and the profound, The Seagull forensically examines the transcendence and destructiveness of love. The burning need to create art and how harshly that need can be crushed permeates this classic play.

Adelayo Adedayo plays Nina, Michele Austin plays Pauline, Paul Higgins plays Hugo Dorn, Cherrelle Skeete plays Marcia, Nicolas Tennant plays Peter Sorin and Brian Vernel plays Konstantin. The new cast joins the previously announced Lesley Sharp who plays Irina Arkadina.

 

The Seagull plays Lyric Hammersmith from 3 October – 4 November 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
