The lives of unforgettable characters, including the famous novelist Trigorin, the celebrated actress Arkadina, her son Konstantin and the young Nina, unfold in Chekhov’s work of genius.
The Seagull is about the stories we craft out of our dreams and disappointments, about love in all its guises and about artists who behave just like everyone else – only a little bit more so!
Tender and humorous, this play is for anyone touched by love, or anyone who harbours a secret passion for Who magazine. A passionate, delightful, infuriating diva brings her entourage home to the family estate, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Glittering with style, talent and passion, Emmy and AFI Award-winning and Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-nominated Greta Scacchi is born to bring Arkadina to life.
By Anton Chekhov (in a new adaptation by Hilary Bell)
“Chekhov’s plays were the greatest since Shakespeare.” The New York Times
“This production celebrates WA’s community that knows so well the joys and perils of welcoming home friends and family from foreign climes. Will they delight us with their adventures or carelessly wreak havoc? The brilliant Greta Scacchi brings to life Chekhov’s fascinating actress, Arkadina, while her beautiful daughter Leila George lights up our stage as Nina.” Kate Cherry
