The first of Anton Chekhov’s realistic plays, The Seagull is a 4 act, slice of life drama filled with comedic irony about artists navigating through life. The play deals with the human condition and the conflict between ourselves and others. Come along with us as we delve into artistic creation, anguish, compassion and the struggles of an artist in this new take on a well known classic.
