The Seagull (1992)
February 14, 1992

Konstantin stages his new play on the grounds of his uncle's lakeside estate to glorify Nina, the aspiring actress he loves, and impress his mother, Arkadina, whose attention is lavished on the young, successful writer who accompanies her.  Overcome with desire and desperate for attention, Treplev kills a seagull, throws it at Nina's feet, and threatens suicide if she refuses to return his love.  Although Nina initially identifies with the sacrificial bird, she ultimately finds the strength to survive the loss of her love, her child, and her dream of fame.  Konstantin, devastated by his mother's indifference and Nina's inability to love him, destroys his work and commits suicide.
