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, a meditation on how we say goodbye to those we love most. Directed by Carrie Cracknell, this heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love, Sea Wall / A Life is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
