Translated by Christopher Hampton. Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull is considered one of his most haunting and atmospheric character studies. A would-be playwright is at war with his egoistic mother while the town has become intoxicated by a sensational author. And as the alluring newcomer steals away Kosta’s only love, their new romance could have devastating consequences.

Difficult to follow
- E. Dickstein
Understanding, heartbreak, laughter.
The beginning, the middle and of course the end.
I couldn't have imagined better players.
Chekhov's drama can twist a knife into your heart and then leave you in laughter seconds later. Pure genius.
If you love plays you will know this one, however it is still great to listen to.
