by Anton Chekhov
in a new version by Benedict Andrews
The Seagull is Chekhov’s extraordinary gathering of a group of bruised and incandescent dreamers who cannot, no matter how they try, get what they want. It is also one of the masterpieces of theatre about theatre; an exploration of how telling stories and coining symbols interacts with life.
Benedict Andrews’ adaptation brilliantly reawakens the spirit of Chekhov’s great play. Set in a world which is at once Russia then and Australia now, this new version is charged with all the good faith and natural poetry of Chekhov’s original.
