CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program

The Seagull

written by Anton Chekhov
translated by Paul Schmidt
directed by Sarah Elizabeth Wansley

Run time: 2 hours, 30 minutes (includes 15 minute intermission)

It’s The Seagull as you have never seen it before as Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece gets a fresh, contemporary take in this youthful and energetic production. Each on their own quest for artistic and romantic fulfillment, guests at a country estate find themselves entangled in romantic triangles, leading to resentment, jealousy, and misplaced affection along with love, music, and laughter through tears.
