Anton Chekhov in a version by Martin Crimp
Directed by Naomi Baker
Performed by Oundle School
'Young girl lives on shore of lake since childhood - like you. Loves the lake – like the seagull. Is happy and free – like the seagull. Then one day a man turns up, sees her, and mindlessly destroys her.'
Martin Crimp's pared down version of Chekhov's first great play reveals the full force of its comedy and cruelty – whether it's love, sex, incredible fame, or simply a trip into town, each character is denied the thing they most crave.
