The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company
Presents The Seagull, by Anton Chekhov
In a version by Christopher Hampton, based on a literal translation by Vera Liber. The Seagull follows the contentious relationship between famous actress Irina Arkadina and her son, the aspiring playwright Konstantin Treplev. When Arkadina begins a relationship with the writer Boris Trigorin, whom she brings to her family's summer home, jealousy and resentment break out. With a play-within-a-play, references to Shakespeare's Hamlet, and an exploration of the world as stage, The Seagull has many connections to Shakespearean theatre. Pigeon Creek's production will employ many of the companies' signature staging conditions, such as cross-gendered casting, direct audience contact, and live music and sound effects to bring Chekhov's classic to life.
Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company is Michigan’s only year-round, touring Shakespeare Company.
