The Seagull

by Anton Chekov

"Then one day a man turns up, sees her, and mindlessly destroys her - just like this seagull"

Konstantin longs to earn the respect of his mother, but she can't stand to be around him: his youth mirrors her age. She is a successful actress, vain and arrogant, bringing destruction along with her wherever she goes. Nina dreams of the bright lights of the theatre, but when she meets an older writer she sets out on a path that tears everyone apart.

The Seagull is Anton Chekov's most famous play, a story of unrequited love and existential crisis. This translation by Martin Crimp strips down the text to its bare bones, presenting this classic play in its rawest form.
