Russian misery has never been this much fun!
There is a Special Offer for Leith people.
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.
