The Seagull

Age Restriction: Suitable for 14+.

The work of Anton Chekhov regularly has a home on a London stage and this is true once again in 2015 as The Seagull is presented at the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park for a brief run of performance in the summer. The production is directed by Matthew Dunster and will see talented performers working from the acclaimed Russian dramatist’s script.

The celebrated piece has been seen around the world since it was first staged in 1896 (though it was the staging in 1898 in which it really took off) and stands up alongside Chekhov’s plays like The Cherry Orchard, Uncle Vanya and Three Sisters. Its ongoing popularity ensures that there will be plenty of crowds eager to pick up theatre tickets when it makes its way back to the stage in 2015.

The Seagull deals with the dramas between a range of characters meeting at a house in the country -there to witness and perform in an open air play. These characters include Boris Trigorin, a writer, Irina Arkadina, an actress, Konstantin Treplev, a playwright, Nina Zarechnaya, a landowner’s daughter and Ilya Shamrayev, a former lieutenant, among others.

Director Matthew Dunster has been behind numerous plays in recent years, including Before The Party at the Almeida Theatre last year and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Open Air Theatre in 2012. His work has earned great acclaim, including an Olivier Award nomination, and as such his staging of The Seagull will be one to keep an eye on as it draws closer.

Alongside productions like Peter Pan and Lord Of The Flies, The Seagull appears at the 2015 season of the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from Friday 19th June 2015.
