YURI is a biographical musical about the life of Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin. This is a full-length two act musical with a cast of between 12-15 currently in development.
Yuri was raised under Nazi rule in the communist Soviet Union and always had a passion for flying. After the war he took flying lessons and joined the military as a pilot, before being invited on a highly dangerous, secret mission - to be the first man in space.
Our story follows Yuri from his humble beginnings to becoming one of the most famous people on the planet, set against the backdrop of a fearful and competitive Cold War world.
Patrick has presented some samples from the show below and would be interested in developing the material with the support of a keen producer. If you are interested in the project I look forward to hearing from you at
