UCLU Cry of the Gull



Six lives uprooted by war. Displaced to Europe while desperately trying to protect a sense of family. Based on true stories and verbatim accounts, this play uses poetic structures and physical theatre to explore the emotional experience of becoming a refugee. An elderly couple travelling to find their son, newlyweds starting a life together and siblings who only have each other. Their lives collide on a smuggler’s vessel to Greece. How do you rebuild your life when it feels like you've lost everything?
