SYNOPSIS

In Chekhov’s drama, a group of artists spends their holiday in the countryside, bringing their frustrations, love stories, work, desire for fame and fulfillment. In this place, everyone is infected with the virus of art: a famous actress Arkadina; her son, Konstantin, who would like to remain an independent artist; her lover, Trigorin, a successful writer; Nina, a young girl who desperately wants to become an actress; a doctor who cannot stand living in the countryside; a poor teacher; Masha who desires to become the muse of some artist; and Arkandina’s dying sister, who still cannot come to terms with the fact she has not become even the lousiest writer.

 

The modern adaptation of Seagull presents a painful analysis of artists’ attitudes; it becomes a story about indolent elites whose distant ideas have been buried by comfort and conformism. It tells about former rebels who sell their ideals and become self-content “ham actors”; about artists who, detached from the rest of society, become a selfish elite that will do anything in its power to defend its position and refuse to acknowledge the incoming doom.
