By Anton Chekhov
In a new version by John Donnelly
In association with Derby Theatre
“A lake. A young girl who's spent her life beside it. She loves the lake, she's happy, she's free - like a seagull. Then a man comes along, sees her, and destroys her.”
A play about unrequited love - a story about how we create stories - and one of the greatest plays of the modern era. In The Seagull, Chekhov explores emotion, creativity and romantic conflict with the clarity of a doctor and the heart of a poet.
This new version is a co-production between Headlong, “the country’s most exciting touring company” (Daily Telegraph), renowned for their innovative, accessible re-imaginings of classic texts, and The Nuffield, Southampton. Headlong's recent work includes The Effect, Medea, Earthquakes in London and ENRON. The Seagull is directed by Blanche McIntyre, recently described by London’s Evening Standard as "a rising star."
