Russian misery has never been this much fun!

Seagulls is at the 2017 Fringe! See it at The Leith Volcano, (Venue 183), our new independent Fringe Venue. Check out other shows at The Leith Volcano here.

There is a Special Offer for Leith people.

Leith Volcano Seagulls Trailer from Volcano Theatre on Vimeo.

A young girl has lived all her life by a lake. Like a seagull, she loves the lake, and she’s happy and free. But a man comes along and wrecks her life for want of anything better to do.

Volcano’s ‘astonishing, visceral version’ of Chekhov’s The Seagull is performed in a spectacular setting within a decaying church.

Five lost souls climb walls and swing on ropes, fall in and out of love, dance to a sensational soundtrack, play games, get wet and fight duels. An impossibly sad, unreasonably funny and ludicrously inventive version of a temperamental Russian classic.

Part of the British Council Showcase and the Wales in Edinburgh portfolio.

Seagulls is also appearing in Scenofest at World Stage Design 2017 in Taipei 1-9 July, supported by Wales Arts International. It is available for UK and international touring.
