Performed by Pelin Morgan.
Produced by Mrinmoyee Roy
Written and directed by Amitai Landau-Pope with Alasdair Linn as assistant director.
Supported by the Cameron Mackintosh Drama Fund.
“There are some plays that leave you frozen for a second when they end. Where the whole audience pauses for just a few moments: no-one looks at their phone, or gathers up their coat, or even turns to a friend to discuss it because they’re so astonished by what they’ve just seen. (The Wings of the) Seagull was one of these plays.”
“Ultimately, (The Wings of the) Seagull is up there with some of the best student drama I’ve ever seen, and both Morgan and Landau-Pope’s talent cannot be overexaggerated.” Cherwell.
“Following the great success of Little Eyolf and I Punched A Nazi (and I liked it), Amitai Landau-Pope has produced yet another masterpiece in which his unique voice, immediacy of emotion, and keen eye for thought-provoking concepts have never been more powerfully presented. This is a play that will shake you to the core.” Oxford Opening Night.
