Farnham Maltings

Comedy writer and opera singer Lucy Mellors has had enough.

Enough of grovelling to all-powerful male directors.

Enough of being judged for eating a biscuit.

Enough of singing by the bras at the back of Marks and Spencer.

Enough of sacrificing her mental health in pursuit of a dream.

Intertwining Lucy’s experiences as an award-winning opera singer with the stories of Valentina Tereshkova (the first woman in space) and Valentina Ponomaryova (almost the first woman in space), It is I, Seagull is a hilarious exploration of self-esteem, joy, failure, opera and space travel.

Fusing opera and comedy, Lucy exposes current and historical everyday sexism to ask what it takes to achieve something extraordinary, and is it worth it?
