By : Aaron Posner
Directed by : Howard Shalwitz
Loosely Based on : Chekhov's The Seagull
Co-produced with : Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company & Portland Center Stage
A ripe mash-up of mock and awe marks this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull. Award-winning playwright Aaron Posner wages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. 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. A huge hit for D.C.’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre where it has been revived twice and performed to sold-out houses.
