“The Seagull” is the story of the original dysfunctional family, somewhere in the Russian country, about 1900. People fall in love, people drink, people shoot birds and even themselves. Medvedenko, a schoolteacher, is in love with Masha, the daughter of Shamrayev who is the Manager of Sorin’s estate, where the play takes place. But Masha is in love with Konstantin, the son of Sorin’s sister Arkadina, a celebrated actress. He is in love with Nina, an aspiring actess who lives across the lake near the estate. He suffers from the humiliation of his mother who is more interested in the writer Trigorin than in him. Trigorin himself is in love with the landscape since it offers him distraction from his manic desire to write. Eventually Arkadina spoils a play that Konstantin has set up with Nina in the main role. His yearning for a new form of theater alienates him from Nina who falls for Trigorin. The Joseph Papp Public Theater presented Chekov’s play as part of the New York Shakespeare Festival summer season in Central Park.
