Bedlam Theatre




Simon Stephens

Part of Bedfest 2014


Come and meet Alex, you’ll like him. Alex will talk to you about photography, God and Daniel Craig. And Alex will talk to you about Lucy. A beautiful, devastating and funny story by Simon Stephens about life, love and the sea. 

A one - man monologue, Sea Wall first premiered in 2008 at the Bush Theatre in London as part of their ‘Broken Spaces’ season with tremendous success, before transferring to a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Described by Lyn Gardener as ‘one of the most devastating 30 minutes that you are ever likely to experience in the theatre’, Sea Wall’s moving story is remembered long after Alex has left the stage.
