Focusing on the romantic and artistic conflicts between four theatrical characters, The Seagull is the first of Chekhov’s four major plays. Krétakör approaches the secrets of this intricate play, performing it as a story set in our time about people of today. Director Árpád Schilling is one of the most exciting talents working in Europe today. Stripped back to its essence, this production of Chekhov’s classic tragicomedy abandons traditional notions of theatre and theatrical performance, instead inhabiting the skins of the characters. Performed without set or costumes, it is thrillingly simple, bringing theatre closer to you than you ever imagined possible… Performed in Hungarian with English surtitles ‘This is one of the most extraordinary productions of this play I’ve ever seen: iconoclastic, individual, eccentric, fearless’ Sunday Times
