Quotes & Highlights

“All in all, I cannot recommend The Seabirds strongly enough. I can quite happily say that my opinion of Argos Productions remains as high as it ever has been, and I am dearly looking forward to their next set of shows, and for William Orem’s play to continue on to even larger venues in the future, because it certainly deserves it.” —


This play contains brief nudity, adult situations and themes. The show is recommended for those ages 14 and older.

About the Ticket Supplier: Argos Productions

At Argos, we believe that the strongest way for us to help playwrights grow as writers is through production of their work. Putting the characters in three dimensions is the way we like to work, so the focus of our efforts is to get the play up on its feet. However, we know that not every show is ready for the stage right away, so Argos Productions strives to provide insight, support, and potential development opportunities to all playwrights who come to us, whenever resources will allow.
