Description

By Aaron Posner

Directed by Jeff Casazza

An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation.  A nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist.  And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be.  In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, playwright Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all.

“The play is ‘less an adaptation of Chekhov’s landmark drama’ than a funny, moving slugfest, a ripe mashup of mock and awe…sometimes it blows Chekhov up, and sometimes the play explodes with a genuinely Chekhovian release of emotion. The show is smart enough to have it both ways: It mines The Seagull for classical heft even while giving it the bird.” —Washington Post
