World Premiere Adaptation
A SEAGULL IN THE HAMPTONS

Written and directed by Emily Mann
Freely adapted from Chekhov’s The Seagull


The wait is over!  This season artistic director and resident playwright Emily Mann completes her cycle of Chekhov's major works, with her own bold adaptation of The Seagull.  Mann brings this Russian masterpiece into the 21st century with bright contemporary language and a modern Hamptons’ setting. In a world of appearance, money, business and celebrity culture, the heart of the play is a story about the heartbreaking betrayal of children by their parents. With relevance, humor, and flowing, natural language, Mann's adaptation of Chekhov's play challenges us to think about where America's culture is going.
Contains strong language and mature themes.
