The Seagull – A Russian Tragicomedy
St Philip’s College Senior Drama proudly presents The Seagull – A Russian Tragicomedy by Anton Chekhov. Adapted by Steve Kidd and the Year 12 Drama students, this play was first produced at the Alexandrinsky Theatre, St Petersburg, 17 October 1896. It’s summer in pre-revolution Russia in the 1890’s and we are at Sorin’s estate, eagerly anticipating an amateur theatrical performance written and staged by his nephew, Konstantin Gavrilovich. But all is not well; unrequited love, shattered dreams, obsessive characters and misery ensue.
Anton Chekhov wrote The Seagull as a comedy, what’s so funny about it? We think it’s quite tragic. You be the judge.
