The Seagull

February 25 – March 6, 2016

by Anton Chekhov

The tragicomic first masterpiece by one of the most deeply humane artists of the modern age. Meet Arkadina, the theatre diva; her lover, Trigorin, a famous writer;  her playwright son, Konstantin, whom she keeps in penury; and Nina, the budding actress who yearns for fame. Amid combustible issues of family, class, artistic integrity, and love, the absurdity and pathos of life vie in their timeless struggle. A world classic by the revered Russian master.

The Seagull is presented for two weeks only, February 25-March 6, 2016. Shows are Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday at 2:30pm in the Hartmann Center for the Performing Arts.  Tickets and more information are available through the Cultural Events Box Office: 309-677-2650, or
