Emilia Clarke

Looking to see world-famous celebrities in the West End? You won’t want to miss The Seagull. See Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke play Nina in Anya Reiss’ adaptation of the Anton Chekhov classic.

On making her West End debut, Clarke said: “I am over the moon to be playing Nina in Jamie Lloyd’s interpretation of The Seagull. I’ve long been a fan of the singular vision he brings to each of his masterful productions and the way he approaches classical texts. We are so lucky to be working with Anya’s brilliant adaptation, as she brings a light touch of modernity to this beautifully crafted play. I cannot wait to get stuck in with these two visionaries.”

The Seagull follows four people in an isolated home in the Russian countryside, as they turn on each other in order to achieve their desires.

Anya Reiss’ adaptation will be directed by Jamie Lloyd as part of his current season at the Playhouse Theatre, including James McAvoy in Cyrano de Bergerac.

The Seagull tickets are available now.
