A meaningful moment between Jacob (Seb Muirhead) and Violet (Kerry du Plessis).

A meaningful moment between Jacob (Seb Muirhead) and Violet (Kerry du Plessis).


Based on a true story; an honest, raw and unapologetically relatable tale of fatherhood.

Bouncing back and forth over three decades, this new play follows two generations of the same family line, as all involved face the challenges and exhilaration that parenthood brings. Breaking away from the magical view that Hollywood portrays of having children, these two entwined stories do not hold back at the hardships, internal struggles, relationship strains, and demons that this big life change can have.

Seb played Jacob, the step father to main character Zac, an apparent hero but with some of his own emotional baggage.

‘Waiting On You’ November 2018, Performed at Southbank Theatre, Melbourne

After moving abroad to a fast paced city, Georgi must learn to keep up with the unfamiliar hard and fast lifestyle of the underground hospitality industry. New to the world of waiting tables and warped rules, she quickly falls head over heels for the thrill of the ‘big smoke’ lifestyle… amongst other things. 

Gabrielle Pearson’s original piece shines light on confronting realities in our culture that are current yet still seen as taboo. The piece is unapologetic, raw, witty and written in a contemporary style with an international flavour. It is a story of corruption and destruction but at it’s core, a story of love, friendship and finding strength in letting go. 

Seb played the morally ambiguous bar owner Mason.

‘cracked smiles’ July 2018, performed at chapel off chapel, Melbourne

In what appears to be a “normal” mental asylum, eight psychopaths spend their imprisonment running free and causing corrupt chaos. A currency of poker chips nobody can afford, self nominated dictators, exploitation, discrimination, and even murder. But as Nurse Luna watches a new friend die in the name of peace, she opens her eyes to what she’s let happen.

In Cracked Smiles, each character, each interaction, and each moment, is a representation of the cracks of corruption in our own society. The ultimate metaphor for the world around us whilst telling a dark and enthralling narrative that leaves us questioning everything.

Seb played the reprehensible and damaged psychopath ‘Nigel’.

“Particularly impressive was Seb Muirhead’s representation of the twitchy, resentful Nigel…”, Melbourne Observer.

‘the helendale nude footy calendar’ Jan 2018, performed at Gasworks theatre, Melbourne

A footy club is going under, and to save it they'll need one heck of an idea.

Angus may just have one heck of an idea.

A play that tells three parallel stories of being a gay guy in a country town.

A play about mateship, about men, about love, about hating every single thing around you except for the thing you love more than anything else in the world.

Seb played the role of ‘Jack Martin’, unsure stepfather of ‘Connor’.

‘Crush’ may 2017, performed at the owl and cat theatre, Melbourne

In Rob Young’s Crush, three employees working for a national newspaper struggle with keeping their personal lives outside of the workplace as well as the news. While the premise begins interestingly enough with its authentic office atmosphere and entertaining tête-à-tête between Johnny the journalist and Celia the editor, the writing struggles to remain on track with its intentions.

Seb played the role of ‘Johnny’, a beaten down and bitter office worker.

“…Seb Muirhead manages to bring depth to Johnny’s bravado and sarcasm…”, mymelbournearts.com
