A play about unrequited love – a story about how we create stories – and one of the greatest plays of the modern era. In The Seagull, Chekhov explores emotion, creativity and romantic conflict with the clarity of a doctor and the heart of a poet. John Donnelly’s new version brings to startling life the rawness, beauty and humour of Chekhov’s first major play.

A co-production between the multi award-winning Headlong (Artistic Director Rupert Goold), renowned for their innovative, accessible re-imaginings of classic texts, and The Nuffield, Southampton. Headlong’s recent work includes Medea, Boys, Romeo and Juliet, Earthquakes in London, The Effect and ENRON.
