Ex-ALRA students to be given professional stage debut in OffWestEnd production of Chekhov’s The Seagull

The Bridge House Theatre are very proud to be working with students who were studying at The Academy of Live & Recorded Arts (ALRA) when it suddenly closed earlier this year.

Artistic Director Luke Adamson will direct a new production of Chekhov’s The Seagull, providing a professional platform for ALRA students to be seen by industry professionals and the general public.

“The ‘Bright Young Things’ have changed the mood in town fuelled by the boom of jazz, fashion and the arts, but on an estate in the country there is only a lake, and the people around it burn for something more…

On a summer’s day in a makeshift theatre by a lake, a bold new play is to be performed. What happens during, and in the days immediately after, this performance will change not just the course of the summer, but the lives of everyone involved, for ever after.”

Luke Adamson’s adaptation of Chekhov’s masterly meditation on love and art relocates the action to roaring 1920’s Britain.

The Seagull runs 23 Aug – 3 Sep 2022 at The Bridge House Theatre, 2 High Street, Penge, SE20 8RZ.
