Simon Stephens’ Sea Wall premiered as a stage play at the Bush Theatre in London in 2008 to universal acclaim. It transferred with equal success to the Edinburgh Festival in 2009 where it sold out, and has now been made into a film as radical as it is humane.
The play was written for Olivier Award winning stage and film actor Andrew Scott, most recently seen playing Moriarty opposite Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes in Sherlock on BBC1, and star of Ibsen’s “Emperor and Galilean “ at the National Theatre.
