Synopsis:
When Mark finds an unconscious man lying in the sands on Scarborough beach, he does what any other person would do; he stops to help. He has no idea that in doing so he is starting a chain of events that will seemingly ruin his life. The man slowly recovers, but never speaks. Mark offers him a bed until he can remember who he is, and the strange silent man slowly involves himself in Mark's life and the life of Mark's neighbour Brian." The play examines how we can involve ourselves in the lives of other people, how our actions can affect them and what happens if we stop thinking about ourselves for a second and actually listen to other people.

Seagull, The

Synopsis:
Written in 1896 this is a comic play of aspiration and failure. Nina aspires to be an actress, Kostya a writer. Madame Arkadina and Trigorin are already these things. Can the young people's dreams come true or will they sour when confronted with the adult world? This adaptation relocates the action to the roaring 1920's. The Bright Young Things have changed the mood in town fuelled by the boom of jazz, fashion and the arts, but on an estate in the country there is only a lake, and the people around it burn for something more. We intend to create a fresh, concise story for a modern audience who may not be familiar with the romantic and dramatic devices that Chekhov uses, whilst still retaining the feel and power of the original. We feel that placing the characters in this era adds further depth to Nina's yearning and Konstantin's desire to be different in addition to the needs and wants of all the other characters. The script will be edited to run straight through at no more than 90 minutes with minimal changes to the characters and plot. The casting of a younger Trigorin will be the only main change in the dynamic of the play, furthering his catalytic role amongst the characters.
