As part of The Old Vic’s bicentenary celebrations, Andrew Scott will star in a revival of Simon Stephens’ Sea Wall

Sea Wall is a short play which was written for Scott by Stephens, and is about a man named Alex who speaks of his wife, visiting his father in the south of France, and his daughter, peppered with musings about religion and beliefs. The play premiered at the Bush Theatre in 2008, and was subsequently seen at the National and in Dublin, as well as being adapted into a short film. 

Sea Wall will run at The Old Vic for a limited period from 18th to 30th June.. Sea Wall tickets go on sale on Friday. 

Scott is best-known for playing Moriaty in the BBC series Sherlock, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. On stage, he recently starred as the title character in Robert Icke’s production of Hamlet at the Almeida Theatre, and its West End transfer. 

Simon Stephens’ work includes hit play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle and an adaptation of Brecht’s The Threepenny Opera

On the revival of the piece, Scott said: ‘Sea Wall, to my mind, is a stunning piece of writing, and the idea of performing Simon’s beautiful play in this most magical of theatres makes me really happy’. 

Stephens added: ‘This news has just about made my summer’.
