About this show

​On a summer's evening, at a makeshift theater by a lake, a young writer's new work is performed. In the wake of its spectacular failure, its audience — all connected by love — confront their own regret, grief, mortality, pettiness, and loneliness. Though written over a century ago for Russian audiences, The Seagull is an abiding tale that plumbs the joys and pains of our desperate human need to be close to one another. The Wheel Theatre Company's new version of Chekhov's comedy is an ode to our first drafts and our failures; to our most bewildering infatuations; to our futile, comic search for reason; and to our inexplicable ability to endure.
