About the Show:
The Seagull
by Anton Chekhov
Adapted and Directed by Don Russell
September 2014

This re-envisioning of Anton Chekhov’s classic work, The Seagull, explores the often opposing ideals of Commercial Art vs. Visceral Art from the perspective of the story’s chief protagonist, Konstantin, a disenfranchised writer seeking new forms of artistic expression. Konstantin finds himself locked in a struggle with the forms of commercial art embodied by his famous actress mother, Arkadina, and her lover Trigorin, a renowned writer. This expressionist take on a classic play seeks to delve into the heart and mind of an artist and ask the vital question of where do we as a society place value in art: on commercial value or artistic expression of the human soul?
