Gyllenhaal and Sturridge Preserve Sea Wall/A Life to Audible

Gyllenhaal and Sturridge Preserve Sea Wall/A Life for Audible

With just a week left to catch the Broadway production of Sea Wall/A Life at the Hudson Theatre, theatre fans will be excited to learn that stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge will preserve their acclaimed performances for Audible. Audible is the world’s largest producer and provider of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word entertainment today. Sturridge performs Simon Stephens’ Sea Wall,  with Gyllenhaal bringing to life Nick Payne’s A Life.

Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge will preserve the stories of “Alex, a photographer on a holiday with his family in the south of France, and Abe, a music producer with a baby on the way. Two men – both fathers, husbands, and sons – take us on a journey you will never forget.”

“I speak for both Tom and myself when I say that it has been one of the great privileges of our respective careers to be a part of this show and to perform these exquisite pieces of writing,” said Gyllenhaal. “There is something utterly unique about them both separately and together that has connected us to audiences in a way that somehow unlocks the undeniable truth that we are all connected by love and the inevitable impermanence of life. These pieces connected so personally and profoundly with audiences every night,” said Gyllenhaal. “It’s exciting that with Audible’s release those who weren’t able to catch Sea Wall / A Life during the Broadway run will still be able to experience it in a meaningful way and that this play will live on and continue to connect us to one another.”
