Production Description
Sturridge, in his third collaboration with Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (Heisenberg, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), performs Sea Wall, an astonishing monologue about love and the human need to know the unknowable.

Gyllenhaal continues his artistic collaboration with Olivier Award-nominated playwright Nick Payne (Constellations, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) in A Life, a meditation on how we say goodbye to those we love most.

Directed by Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House, The Deep Blue Sea), this heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love, Sea Wall / A Life is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
