Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge previewed the upcoming Broadway run of Sea Wall / A Life on June 5, ahead of a run at the Hudson Theatre, July 26-September 29. The production originated at the Public Theater.

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), Guy Hoare (lighting design), Daniel Kluger (sound design), and Stuart Earl (original music).
