How can the pursuit of love and happiness drive one to madness? Emotions run high in this comedic, contemporary adaption of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. An aspiring young director invites his close family and friends to a showing of his performance art, which fights against traditional theatre. Things quickly become complicated as his mother, a traditional actress, takes great offense to his work, and his girlfriend begins to flirt with his mother’s lover. As the refreshingly honest characters struggle with the disappointments of love, art, and aging, playwright Aaron Posner explores the true meaning of love and life.
