By Aaron Posner
Directed by Matthew Gutschick

Featuring Wilde award winner *David Montee

In this funny, uber-contemporary remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, author Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, tradition and revolution. Torrid love triangles, philosophical war-waging and foot-stomping hilarity will inspire raucous delight. Ages 13+

The show… “is smart enough to have it both ways. It mines The Seagull for classical heft even while giving it the bird”
– The Washington Post.

“Aaron Posner’s splendid, irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull [is] a refreshing splash of cool water on dry, well-trod terrain.”
– The DCist
