October 29, 2021  AliKat No comments Project Update, The Seagull

What’s On Stage: The Seagull with Emilia Clarke has announced new plans for its West End run.

The piece, adapted from Chekhov by Anya Reiss, had to close in previews last March but is now back for a full run. It follows a group of characters, all based at an isolated house in the country, that console each other as their dreams fall apart.

The piece will star Emilia Clarke (Nina), Tom Rhys Harries (Trigorin), Daniel Monks (Konstantin), Indira Varma (Arkadina) and Sophie Wu (Masha), with Katie Buchholz, Tina Harris and Joseph Langdon. Further cast to be announced.

The show opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 6 July, with previews from 29 June, running until 10 September 2022.

Jamie Lloyd directs, with design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Jackie Shemesh, composition and sound design by George Dennis, projection design by Duncan McLean, associate direction by Jonathan Glew, casting direction by Stuart Burt, costume supervision by Anna Josephs and props supervision by Fahmida Bakht.

The news comes as Cyrano de Bergerac also confirms a return to UK stages. Lloyd said today, “It is incredibly exciting to confirm the return of these productions and, most importantly, the continuation of our access ticket schemes, with 12,000 £15 seats across the productions and 5000 totally free tickets, which will enable people with limited access to the theatre to experience our work — an important commitment as our industry builds back.

“Alongside our brilliant Emerge participants, we’re thrilled to be welcoming more adventurous artists into the company with the announcement of our new Associate Artists and our writers under commission, who will create bold, radical reappraisals of some iconic international plays. Together, they represent the most exciting and innovative talent working in British theatre today.”

For both Cyrano de Bergerac and The Seagull, 12,000 tickets will priced at £15 across all UK productions, with 75% specifically for under 30s, key workers and those receiving government benefits.

In addition, The Seagull will offer 5,000 free tickets for those with limited access to the arts.

The Jamie Lloyd Company has also announced that Zawe Ashton, Soutra Gilmour, Mika Onyx Johnson and Nima Taleghani will be associate artists, while Jade Anouka, Rachel De-lahay, Reiss and Taleghani have been announced as writers under commission.

WINTER IS COMING: Emilia Clarke made her West End debut in a production of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull at the Playhouse Theater in London. Reviews have yet to come out, but we do have images from opening night, which looks like it was a big success!

Clarke plays Nina, a young woman desperate to become an actress so she can escape an isolated life in the Russian countryside. She gets her shot courtesy of Konstantin (Daniel Monks), a young playwright and the son of a famous actor, played by fellow Game of Thrones veteran Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand). Another major character is the middlebrow writer Boris Trigorin (Tom Rhys Harries). The subtext-rich play explores the romantic and artistic relationships between these characters and is considered one of Chekhov’s major works. It’s legit stuff.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Clarke and company can’t have fun with it. Below, they chat about what it’s like working with director Jamie Lloyd:

Unfortunately due to the COVID19 pandemic, the play has been postponed. I will post once it resumes! Here are some photos from her first performance and also from rehearsal.

Emilia Clarke interview: the Game of Thrones star on leaving Westeros behind to tackle the West End

Clarke, who now stars in Chekhov’s The Seagull, tells Louis Wise that the HBO fantasy series made her feel like a ‘small cog in a big machine’

The Times: Emilia Clarke says she views herself primarily as a stage actress, which is a little weird when you consider that she has only appeared in one play professionally before, and it was an absolute turkey. Or, as the 33-year-old star of Game of Thrones says, in her jolly British way, it was “terrible, awful, awful! Bad! That was a bad show!” The piece was Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway in 2013, and it’s safe to say Clarke’s Holly Golightly did not enchant. “I’ll never forget, someone said to me after press night the only thing they liked was the cat.”

If Clarke relays this with surprising good humour, this is part temperament, part experience. For one thing, in person she is relentlessly chipper and pukka. Whereas on HBO’s mega-fantasy series Game of Thrones, she grew in stature as Daenerys Targaryen, a still, dignified stateswoman (until that end), in real life she is a goofy motormouth chatterbox, always eager to catch the joke at her expense. And she is no stranger to what we shall politely call “the mixed review”. She has known some drubbings, whether for that Broadway show, or films such as Last Christmas or Terminator Genisys, or indeed the final series of GoT, which — euphemism alert! — didn’t quite turn out the way everybody wanted.

Luckily she never reads reviews. “Because if it’s really, really good, someone will tell you. And if it’s really, really bad — some f***** will tell you.”

We are meeting today, though, at a rehearsal space in south London, because she is chucking herself back into the fray. For only her second stage appearance, Clarke is going straight into the West End, in Chekhov’s The Seagull, and taking on the prestigious role of Nina. If she is nervous, she’s handling it in the usual way, which is to say with huge blasts of good cheer.

Two clichés about meeting starsis that they are a) smaller than you thought, but b) their features are stronger than expected. Both are true of Clarke. She is tiny, proper Kylie-tiny, nicely decked out in a gauzy beige-cream knit, some fashionably frayed jeans and pointy, well-worn white cowboy boots. Yet her eyes and grin look extra big: if she stays still, she’s a dainty doll, but as soon as she moves it’s Looney Tunes. To be clear, she never stays still.

This energy feels helpful, as we have a lot to pack in. After all, Clarke’s past decade has been particularly wild. Not only did she rocket suddenly to fame in GoT (until then, her only screen credit was an episode of Doctors), she also lost her father to cancer in 2016 and, as she revealed in 2019, had suffered a sequence of brain haemorrhages in her early twenties, just as the madness of GoT was kicking off.

December 20, 2019  AliKat No comments Casting News, The Seagull

 

BROADWAY WORLD – Game of Thrones star, Emilia Clarke, will make her West End debut in Chekhov’s The Seagull at The Playhouse Theater.

According to a new report, Clarke will portray Nina in the new adaptation from Anya Reiss, which will be helmed by director Jamie Lloyd.

The Seagull will begin performances March 11, 2020 and play a limited run through May 30. Booking begins tomorrow. Tickets are available at https://t.co/8FH9dYk0ys?amp=1.

The Seagull premiered in 1896 and has since come to be regarded as the first major work of playwright Anton Chekhov.

Telling the story of the fallout from aging actress Irina’s decision to bring famous writer Trigorin home to her brother’s country estate, the play is a moving testament to writers, actors, and those who know them.

Clarke is best known for her eight years playing Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” She made her Broadway debut portraying Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s in 2013.
