A young man writes a play for his girlfriend and stages it in his uncle’s garden. His unreasonable hopes of success are dashed by his mother, who ridicules the work and introduces the girlfriend to a famous novelist. They fall in love. The young man destroys his play, bungles a suicide attempt and challenges the novelist to a duel.
A young woman acts in a play written by her boyfriend. It is strange, static and has no love in it. She meets the love of her life. Later, he abandons her. Her infant child dies. She continues working as an actress.
A seagull, flying above a lake, is shot. It is then stuffed and mounted in a glass case.
Chekhov’s curiously passionate tale of art, betrayal and avicide is presented in an extensively revised staging at the Castle Theatre by second-year students from Aberystwyth University’s Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, directed by Roger Owen.
Please Note: This performance does not take place in the arts centre. The Seagull will take place in the Castle Theatre.
