Austin Shakespeare presents The Seagull, February 7 – 25 in Rollins Studio Theatre.
The beautiful heartfelt story in a new adaptation set in 19th Century Russia where a budding playwright and a young actress confront their life-long desires in a collision course with his famous mother and her even more famous novelist lover.
The Seagull is a masterpiece of 19th Century theater and defines the themes and structure that Chekhov used in all subsequent plays: the role of the artist, ensemble acting, realistic dialogue and complex characters. Set in the Russian countryside, the play explores the nature of art and love in a confining environment, leading the characters to introspection and self-discovery.
- $18 Preview tickets for the February 7th performance are available!
