“We have to show life not the way it is, or the way it should be, but the way it is in dreams.”—Konstantin in The Seagull
In a garden by a lake, a family assembles to watch a play. Little can they guess how that performance will change their lives.
Written in 1896, Chekhov’s tragicomedy of life and art astonished the old century as it heralded the birth of modern drama. Dreams born and shattered, loves won and lost—The Seagull paints a rich and tumultuous portrait of the human heart.
Director János Szász, whose lush and cinematic productions (Mother Courage, Marat/Sade, and Uncle Vanya) have made him a favorite with A.R.T. audiences, returns to stage this beautiful and haunting play.
