“If ever you have need of my life, then come and take it.” As the moon rises behind a tiny outdoor stage on a lakeside estate, a beautiful young actress performs a new play by Konstantin Treplev. A small gathering of friends and family are in attendance, including Konstantin’s fiery actress mother Arkadina, and her new love interest the famous novelist, Trigorin. The performance, and its aftermath, will forever alter the lives of everyone who see it. What follows is a classic and indelible story of unrequited love, profound sacrifice, and artistic ambition. Anton Chekhov’s distinct melodic language, vivid passion, and comedic honesty are all superbly honored in this brilliant translation by Carol Rocamora. The Seagull famously changed the course of modern drama. Come see why.
