The Cowshed @ Tablehurst Farm

Chekhov's celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivier award-winning playwright Simon Stephens. Switching effortlessly between the ridiculous and the profound The Seagull forensically examines the transcendence and destructiveness of love. The burning need to create art and how harshly that need can be crushed permeates throughout the play.


Simon Stephen's new adaption of The Seagull received its premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith, London on 3 October 2017 and is now brought to you by the Barebones Theatre Project as a community play directed by Naomi Wirthner with financial support from Wealden District Council and Java & Jazz in Forest Row.


We are really excited to have two venues to show this powerful play; the Dairy at Springhill Farm (with pizza's from Java and Jazz) and the lower cow barn at Tablehurst Farm (with pre-show barbecue). But book early, seats go really quickly.


Bookings for this amazing play, are through our new Eventbrite ticketing portal, click on the right.
