English original text

“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.”

One of the greatest plays of the modern era, modernised by John Donnelly. In THE SEAGULL, Chekhov explores emotion, creativity and romantic conflict with the clarity of a doctor and the heart of a poet.
