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's also one of the masterpieces of theatre about theatre, an exploration of how telling stories and coining symbols interacts with life. By turns elevated and scrappy, gorgeous and mundane, The Seagull is a vision
of humanity enduring in the presence of eternity.
