About the Show Less...

Following their acclaimed productions of The Winter's Tale and The Rivals, Compass Theatre Company returns to Greenwich Theatre with The Seagull, one of the defining works of modern theatre. Read More >

Vain, insecure, heartfelt and heartless, the famous actress Arkadina demands to be the centre of attention. Her son Konstantin, a pretentious unpublished writer, is in love with Nina, who in turn is in love with the famous writer Trigorin – who is Arkadina’s lover. But Konstantin is not unloved himself – Masha is in love with Konstantin, and Medvedenko is in love with Masha… When, within this shifting circle of love and ambition, Konstantin kills a seagull and lays it at the feet of his estranged lover, his violent act foreshadows the shattering events that are to come.
