A seagull manages to escape from an oil slick, only to lay one last egg and with her dying breath ask Zorba, a harbour cat in Hamburg, to promise that he will hatch the egg and teach the chick to fly! How on earth will Zorba manage it? But nothing is impossible when you have good friends, wise enough help you discover your true self at just the right moment and so… learn to fly.

Pericles Theatre Company are delighted to bring their adaptation of ”The story of a seagull and of the cat who taught it to fly” by Chilean-born writer Luis Sepúlveda back to Brighton Fringe following their successful run (and award nomination) last year.

“Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Adults and kids – go & see it!”
“Fantastic performance – poignant, funny, & beautifully directed.”
“The combination of imagination, humour & joy that Pericles brings is just unique.”

Directed by Vasile Nedelcu – with original music and songs by David Brett and costumes by Anca Albani – Pericles Theatre Company bring this heartwarming story to life with their special mix of accessibility, diversity and rough theatre.

Pericles Theatre Company brings professional creatives together with young adults with complex needs to create colourful, fun, imaginative shows which appeal to all ages.
