Chekhov’s beloved and classic ‘slice of life’ play proves the long-standing formula of comedy equaling tragedy plus time. Chock full of sumptuous characters portrayed by local favorites, our story studies the frustrating facets of bitter dissatisfaction, the ridiculousness of the human spirit and ultimately the inevitable and ironic satire of it all. That’s The Seagull – that’s life!

Cast includes Jessica “Red” Bays, Thomas Laitinen, John Sarkela, Alastar Dimitrie, Lilith Kontos, B.G Bradley, Christopher Scott Leith, Monet Chartier, Hanna Numinen, Shane Vincent and Chet DeFonso.

Adaptation translated by Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival Executive Director Alastar Dimitrie.
