Richmond Shakespeare Society : The Seagull

by Anton Chekhov, in a new version by Torben Betts, directed by Susan Conte

As summer guests assemble at a country house for the staging of an avant-garde play, artistic temperaments ignite to reveal a more entertaining drama behind the scenes. Romantic jealousies, self-doubt and the ruthless pursuit of personal happiness take centre stage in The Seagull, the first of Chekhov's great works.

Torben Betts has created a radically funny new version of this classic and the play becomes a fresh, free-flying adaptation. It will break your heart but rock you with laughter.
