November 11–21, 2021
In this irreverent, contemporary and very funny remix of The Seagull, Aaron Posner scoops up Anton Chekhov’s tale of unanswered love, missed opportunities and misplaced dreams, and sets it down squarely in the bustle of 21st Century life. This bold and cheeky update stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present — in search of the true meaning of it all. This production has been programmed as a conversation with the BA and Theatre Minor’s production of Sharon Carnicke’s award-winning translation of Chekhov’s The Seagull, allowing the two casts and design teams to explore dramaturgical work together and giving audiences the opportunity to compare two intertwined plays.
