Vain, insecure, heartfelt and heartless, the famous actress Arkadina demands to be the centre of attention. Her son Konstantin, a pretentious unpublished writer, is in love with Nina, who in turn is in love with the famous writer Trigorin – who is Arkadina’s lover. But Konstantin is not unloved himself – Masha is in love with Konstantin, and Medvedenko is in love with Masha… When, within this shifting circle of love and ambition, Konstantin kills a seagull and lays it at the feet of his estranged lover, his violent act foreshadows the shattering events that are to come.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
