Tom Stoppard made this English version for the Peter Hall Company at the Old Vic. Here, amid the "weariness of life in the country", the famous actress Arkadina presides over a household riven with desperate love, with dreams of success and dread of failure.

Her son, Konstantin, shoots a seagull; the novelist, Trigorin, will one day write the seagull's story; but it is Nina "The Seagull" herself, whose life to come will rewrite the story.

REVIEWS:

"Stoppard's recent translation of The Seagull has given us the achingly sad and escapably tragic world that the great Russian playwright envisioned. The work overtakes us... Emotions flow like tears."
