About Sea Wall/A Life

Meet Alex, a photographer on a holiday with his family in the south of France. Meet Abe, a music producer with a baby on the way. Two men–both fathers, husbands, and sons–take us on a journey you will never forget.

The finest actors of their generation, Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Sunday In The Park With George) and Tony Award® nominee Tom Sturridge (1984), had audiences roaring to their feet at the sold-out engagement at The Public Theater. Now Sea Wall/A Life—from the writers of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Constellations, and the director of A Doll’s House—comes to Broadway.
