About Sea Wall / A Life:

Sea Wall / A Life is a heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love. Tom Sturridge, in his third collaboration with Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens, performs Sea Wall, an astonishing monologue about love and the human need to know the unknowable. Jake Gyllenhaal continues his artistic collaboration with Olivier Award-nominated playwright Nick Payne in A Life, an emotional examination of how sons become fathers and the transformative power of love. Together, under the direction of Carrie Cracknell, Sea Wall / A Life is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
