The Public Theater's acclaimed production of the double bill Sea Wall / A Life, starring Tom Sturridge and Jake Gyllenhaal, will come to Broadway's Hudson Theatre for a limited run this summer, July 26-September 29.

Sea Wall, written by Simon Stephens and performed by Sturridge, is described as "an astonishing monologue about love and the human need to know the unknowable," while A Life, written by Nick Payne and performed by Gyllenhaal, is described as "an emotional examination of how sons become fathers and the transformative power of love."

Directed by Carrie Cracknell, the creative team includes Laura Jellinek (scenic design), Kaye Voyce (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Fabian Obispo (sound design), and Stuart Earl (original music).

Tom Sturridge will be one of two solo performers in Sea Wall / A Life on Broadway.
