 In celebration of its 200th Birthday, The Old Vic has today announced that the acclaimed Paines Plough production of Simon Stephens‘ powerful monologue, Sea Wall, performed by Andrew Scott, will now play at The Old Vic from Monday 18 June to Saturday 30 June 2018 as a special addition to the its Bicentenary season.

Sea Wall is directed by Artistic Director of Paines Plough, George Perrin.

Sea Wall was performed at the Bush Theatre in 2008 and subsequently performed at the NT Shed in 2013 and the Project Arts Centre, Dublin Theatre Festival in 2015.

Things for Alex are good. He loves his wife, his daughter, his city, his job.

But sometimes the force of life can crash against you.

Sometimes everything you thought you could always depend on can be taken away.

Andrew Scott said:

‘I’m so excited to return to The Old Vic. Sea Wall, to my mind, is a stunning piece of writing, and the idea of performing Simon’s beautiful play in this most magical of theatres makes me really happy. Thanks Matthew for having us. I hope The Old Vic audiences will love the play as much as I do.’
