By Aaron Posner

     Dev is in love with Mash, Mash is in love with Con, Con is in love with Nina, and Nina competes with the Hollywood actress, Emma for the love of literary star, Trig. In this edgy and hilarious update of The Seagull, Con has only a bird, a gun and the help of the audience to win Nina and prove that love conquers all. …Or does it? This metatheatrcial and fun-filled event of unrequited love, Generation Z angst, and the meaning of art, reimagines Chekhov’s brilliance for the modern audience.
Seating for this production will be General Admission.

Aaron Posner’s savvy, petulant blitz through Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull [is] less an adaptation of Chekhov’s landmark drama than a funny, moving slugfest, a ripe mashup of mock and awe…The Washington Post
           

*This play contains strong language and mature content and is not suitable for younger audiences.
