Theatre: The Seagull by Anton Chekhov
University Theatre Center Showcase Theatre UTC Box Office: (936) 294-1339 Tickets $10
THE SEAGULL tells the story of a young aspiring playwright, Konstantin Treplev, who desperately seeks the recognition of his famous actress mother, Irina Arkadina, and her lover, Boris Trigorin, an equally renowned writer; yet both refuse to grant merit to Konstantin?s abilities. To make matters worse for the young artist, his professed love for the beautiful nineteen-year-old Nina, the daughter of a rich landowner, is crushed when she refuses to return his sentiments and instead indulges in a romantic relationship with Trigorin. Translated by Marina Brodskaya; Directed by Maureen McItyre The play underscores the search for happiness through art, love and friendship, and the inescapable nature of the sometimes meaningless melancholy of everyday life. In the end, in a story filled with heartache, a dead seagull represents the destruction the characters have wrought in each other?s lives.
