The Seagull

John Chambers composed the score for The Seagull in 2023. A new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov play for BBC Drama on 3, written by Katherine Tozer and directed by Toby Swift.

“Irene loves Boris. Boris loves Nina. Stan loves Nina too but hates Irene and Boris. Martha loves Stan but married Simon. Peter loves booze and fags. Let battle commence.”

Following their success with The Cherry Orchard in 2021, writer Katherine Tozer, composer John Chambers and director Toby Swift have returned to Chekhov to create this equally brilliant new version of The Seagull.
