Known internationally for her role as Mother of Dragons in the multi-award winning TV show Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke makes her West End debut in a modern production of Anton Chekov’s much-loved classic, The Seagull. Starring as Nina, the leading female role, The Seagull is showing at the Playhouse theatre for a limited time only.
A 21st century adaptation which includes modern twists, The Seagull is set in the 19th Century Russian countryside and follows the dramatic and moving conflicts between four characters: Boris Trigorin, Nina Irina Arkadina and Konstantin Tréplev who find themselves together in an old Russian manor house.
Brought to you by the critically acclaimed director Jamie Lloyd (Macbeth, Cyrano de Bergerac) and his theatre company, The Seagull is set to be a sell-out show so grab your tickets now for an unforgettable theatrical experience with national treasure Emilia Clarke.
The Seagull ticket prices start at £15 and reach £144. The most expensive tickets, which are undoubtedly the best seats in the house, provide incredible views of the stage and can be found in the middle of the Stalls directly opposite the stage. You can also find excellent seats in the centre of the Dress Circle.
If you are looking for more reasonably priced tickets, these can be found in the Upper Circle which is the section of the theatre which is furthest from the stage. There are also slightly cheaper tickets at the back of the Dress Circle.
The Jamie Lloyd theatre company is dedicated to diversifying theatre audiences and making the theatre more accessible. With the support of British Airways, the Jame Lloyd theatre company is providing 15,000 free tickets to first time theatre goers and 15,000 tickets at £15 for key workers, under 30s, and those receiving job seeker’s allowance or other government benefits.
