A unique edition of Chekhov's play in a brilliant translation by a world-renowned team of translators.

This translation of Chekhov's The Seagull includes lines and variants found in Chekhov’s final version of the play, but omitted from the script for the original performance at the Moscow Art Theatre in 1898, which went on to become the standard printed version.

The restored text, a product of the continuing collaboration of playwright Richard Nelson and translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, provides valuable insight into Chekhov’s intentions in his groundbreaking play.

'Pevear and Volokhonsky are at once scrupulous translators and vivid stylists of English' The New Yorker
