Archives - The Seagull

by Anton Chekhov

Directed by Ray Aspey

Saturday 30th October – Saturday 6th November 1971 in the Auditorium

The Seagull was written in 1895. It was described by Chekhov as a “comedy in four acts, a landscape (a view of the lake), much talk about literature and five tons of love”. It was also a challenge to the artificial theatre of the day against which Chekhov introduced a new ‘naturalism’ and real, instead of artificial, characters.
