Anton Chekhov's first major play, a theatrical masterpiece blending comedy and tragedy, comes to Chicago's Athanaeum Theatre. A successful actress brings her celebrated novelist lover to visit her aspiring-playwright son at a fading country estate in rural Russia. As old friends and family gather for an evening and the lives of the ten characters unfold, The Seagull delves into themes of love, petty jealousies, missed connections, unrequited passions and the struggle of artistic creation as the tender romance and brilliant humor build to a climax that at once fulfills and defies expectations
