About this event

A breathtaking modern tragedy. Alex loves his wife, his daughter and his job. Life seems almost too good to be true. But when you least expect it, life can crash into you and everything you thought dependable can be washed away in an instant. 

Originally written for Andrew Scott (TV series Flea Bag/Sherlock) in 2008, Sea Wall has been performed across the globe and become a critical sensation – most recently on Broadway starring Hollywood sensation Jake Gyllenhaal.  

This production of Sea Wall directed by David Mealor with Renato Musolino as Alex was originally presented in 2018 when it received fantastic reviews. It was nominated for numerous awards, winning the Adelaide Critic’s Circle Award for Outstanding Achievement by an Individual and Adelaide Theatre Guide Award for Best Actor.
