Newman Theater

January 26 - March 24, 2019

New York Premiere

Written by Simon Stephens and Nick Payne, respectively
Directed by Carrie Cracknell

Featuring Tom Sturridge and Jake Gyllenhaal, respectively

Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Sunday in the Park with George, ConstellationsIf There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) and Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge (Orphans1984, On The Road) make their Public Theater debut in an unforgettable and incredibly intimate evening of theater.

Sturridge, in his third collaboration with Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (HeisenbergThe 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 (ConstellationsIf 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 HouseThe 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.
