Inspired by Chekhov’s The Seagull this punchy new musical by up and coming writer Beth Hyland brings the classic play into the 21st Century.

Simon goes out with Masha
Masha is secretly in love with Con
Con loves Nina
and Nina dreams of fame

On the precipice of adult life and feeling that everything and anything is possible, four aspiring musicians believe their band SEAGULLS will one day make its mark on the music industry.

But when complicated romances and artistic differences threaten to tear them apart, cracks appear and reality hits hard.
