ABOUT THE PLAY:
Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Sunday in the Park with George, Constellations, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) and Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge (Orphans, 1984, On The Road) make their Public Theater debuts in an unforgettable and incredibly intimate evening of theater.
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, an emotional examination of how sons become fathers and the transformative power of love.
Directed by Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House, The Deep Blue Sea), this heart-filled exploration of the meaning of life is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
