Event description

Description

An immersive, intimate experience of Chekhov's first masterpiece.

The Instigators, a rising theater company known for its "striking, no nonsense portrayal of classic work,"^ now tackles Anton Chekhov's THE SEAGULL for a four week run in TriBeCa. This imaginative, daring production uses a new, agile adaptation of the text and employs a live soundscape that blends actor-created sound effects with original music.

The first of Chekhov's four major plays, THE SEAGULL is about a family of theater artists, and the single month-long sojourn in the country that transforms their lives forever. Konstantin, a young and idealistic playwright, dreams of creating new art forms, but a visit from his famous-actress-mother and her famous-writer-boyfriend overwhelms and demoralizes him. He feels more and more suffocated as his love for the star-struck neighbor girl grows increasingly unrequited. With humor and keen insight, THE SEAGULL exposes the absurdity of the human condition and the poignancy of the need to live an extraordinary life.
