An unforgettable meander into one man's life and his understanding of love and religion, Stephens' Sea Wall has been called stunning and devastating and is a perfect showcase for Oliver-nominated Sturridge.

Taking the stage once again after his incredible performance in Sunday in the Park with George, Jake Gyllenhaal partners with Nick Payne once again in this mediation on grief and loss.
