The Crescent Theatre Company presents

The Seagull

by ANTON CHEKHOV in a new version by CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON

2 - 9 Feb in the Main House

There will be an After Dark discussion following the 19:30 performance on Fri, 8th Feb. Free to ticket holders.

Christopher Hampton’s translation of Chekhov’s comedy masterfully captures the romantic and artistic conflicts of a group of artists, intellectuals, and socialites summering in the house and gardens of Pyotr Sorin’s Russian country estate.

Through biting and witty dialogue, the play tells the story of Konstantin Treplev, a young writer striving to create new theatrical forms, and his disapproving mother Arkadina, a famous actress. His mother’s closeness to her younger lover Boris Trigorin, a famous and well-loved novelist, only exacerbates Konstantin’s insecurities and feelings of inferiority.
