Fame, Love, Justice, Purpose - They All Want Something
Serenbe Playhouse head down to the lake for this brand new production of Anton Chekov's 1895 masterpiece. Featuring an ensemble cast of characters falling in and out of love at over a country house break, adapter and director Elizabeth Dinkova lends some Eastern European flair as she brings Chekov's story to the present day, where you'll find that people's secrets and desires have not changed much in this iconic melodrama.
What is the story of The Seagull?
A group of well-heeled guests gather at the country house of a retired civil servant, to see a new avant-garde play that his young nephew has written. With a heavy emphasis on symbolism, the play is a disaster and is abandoned after the first act. With emotions running high after the aborted performance, we discover a tangle of love triangles amongst the characters, self-doubt and a rampaging pursuit of happiness that threatens to overturn everybody's beliefs and sensibilities.
