Adopted from Chekhov’s classic work, The Seagull was born in the laboratory space of the OKT studio. In this open, intimate, unadorned and authentic space, the actors sit against one wall of the company’s relatively narrow performance area as the spectators come in, and it is from here that they take up their roles in the central space before they return calmly to their seats on the side. On occasion, they respond facially to something said by one character about their character, or about a character with whom they will soon interact, as any actor might in rehearsal.
The script stays true to the original story while giving lots of laughingstocks, making it a real comedy of Chekhov.
