The Depot Theatre, 142 Addison Road, Marrickville
DescriptionA bunch of bohemians gather on a country estate to talk about art and love and fishing. Relationships crisscross and unravel, and regardless of how messy things get, no one seems to get what they want. Yet love and the burning need to create drive them all to keep on striving.
In a letter to his friend, the publisher Alexie Suvorin, Chekhov wrote that he was flagrantly disregarding the basic tenets of the stage to write a play that has four female roles, six male roles, four acts, a view of a lake, much conversation about literature, little action and five tons of love.
Seagull is Chekhov’s celebration of art and love and life.
