Description

A new and condensed adaptation of Chekhov’s must-see classic; often described as the first great modern play. The Seagull offers a wonderful, witty and nihilistic examination of human nature, mental health, and unrequited love. We bring a modern understanding of depression and anxiety to this 19th century classic, while still maintaining Chekhov's dark and ironic humour.
