First Look: Production Images – The Seagull at the Lyric Hammersmith

Unrequited love. Creative jealousy. Guns. Vodka.
Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens directed by Artistic Director 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.
