The Seagull

January 2016

By Anton Chekhov

Chekhov’s masterpiece. Putin’s Russia.

Directed by Cheyney Caddy
Animations by Christie Widiarto
Original Score by Jess Keeffe

In a feat of radical surgery, Black Apple Theatre has reanimated the savage passions that pump through Chekhov’s classic riff on love and misanthropy to create a rebellious mash-up of theatre, animation and live music.

Transplanted into the suburban badlands of Putin’s Russia, three teenage girls play a dangerous game, in defiance of their parents and the State.

Bloody, irreverent, explosive; Black Apple’s Seagull is a very queer bird indeed.

“stimulating, subversive”The Age

“a terrific adaptation of the script… an enjoyable and engaging version of a classic.”Australian Stage

“quite radical… carried with confidence, charm and wit.”Stage Whispers
