Seagull

By Anton Chekhov Translated by Charlotte Pyke, John Kerr and Joseph Blatchley

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A striking version of Chekhov's classic play, by Charlotte Pyke, John Kerr and Joseph Blatchley, restoring to the play the cuts demanded by the Russian censor in 1896.

In nineteenth-century rural Russia, an anxious young writer prepares the first performance of his new play for the two women in his life. The consequences are devastating, with everybody in love with the wrong person, and death hovering close by.

Through both comedy and tragedy, Seagull explores lives that are precariously balanced between love and indifference, success and failure, hope and despair.

This version of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull was first performed at the Arcola Theatre, London, in 2011.
