Set in the Russian countryside at an estate bursting at the seams with guests, three generations collide in The Seagull, a tragicomic tangle of romance, jealousy, and unrequited love. Director Sydney Walsh and the cast wrestle with the eternal questions that haunt the intellectual artist class: What is Love? What is Art? Where is the Vodka?

Madame Ranevskaya returns to her beloved estate for sanctuary after years of being adrift. Though nurtured by friends and family and soothed by the enchantment of The Cherry Orchard, her respite is challenged by ensuing conflict as she and her brother struggle with the opposing dynamics in their midst: Their former serf is now a rich man; the young tutor an outspoken revolutionary, and their former life is no more. Directors Sam Cass and Kila Packett direct the ensemble cast in Chekhov's last play exploring pathos, humor, and survival.

Anton Chekhov (January 29, 1860 - July 15, 1904) was a Russian playwright and short-story writer who is considered to be one of the greatest writers of all time.
