Sea Wall / A Life New York Tickets
Sea Wall/A Life New York TicketsSea Wall/A Life is a 2019 one-act play told through two separate stories united by common themes. The two main characters in the story are at similar points in their lives: Alex, a photographer, is on holiday with his family in France while Abe, a music producer, is expecting his first child. The two stories are seemingly disconnected as if they were separate plays, but together, they combine to form a greater meta-narrative about pain, grief, loss, life and love. Audiences in New York can experience these unique performances live on stage.
A Journey of Love and LossSea Wall/A Life is comprised of two one-act plays, both directed by Carrie Cracknell. The first part is written by Simon Stephens, who won the Olivier and Tony Awards for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. The second part is written by Nick Payne, who’s known for Constellations, The Art of Dying and other productions. Sea Wall/A Life made its worldwide debut off-Broadway at The Public Theater between Feb. 1 and March 31, 2019. The play was produced by The Public Theater in conjunction with Nine Stories, the Ambassador Theatre Group, Seaview Productions, Benjamin Lowy Productions and others. The creative team featured original music by Stuart Earl, scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Kaye Voyce and lighting design by Guy Hoare. Following a brief preview period, Sea Wall/A Life scheduled its Broadway premiere at the Hudson Theatre, located just off Times Square in midtown Manhattan, on Aug. 8, 2019 for a limited engagement. After a run of 60 performances, it closed on Sept. 29 of the same year. The play was a commercial and critical success. It reportedly reached more than 90% theater capacity on average and recouped its entire cost.
