Synopsis

Sort of adapted from The Seagull by Anton Chekhov

Love! Art! Revolution! A passionate young director fights for the future of his art while competing with a famous novelist for the affections of a beautiful young actress. His mother, an aging Hollywood star, struggles with fading youth and her lover’s wandering eye. And through it all, everyone discovers the disappointments and joys of life and love. In its Atlanta premiere, this award-winning play by Aaron Posner (My Name is Asher Lev) hilariously smashes the absolute fuck out of Anton Chekhov’s classic The Seagull.

...a funny, moving slugfest, a ripe mashup of mock and awe. Washington Post
A staggering work of heartbreaking, stupid fucking genius. Time Out Chicago,
An unfailingly delightful jaunt. Washington City Paper
