The Wheel Theatre Company’s new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull opens this week at the DC Arts Center in Washington, DC. This production runs for three weeks from March 14-30, 2019 and is adapted & directed by The Wheel’s artistic director, Jack Read.
The cast features local DC performers Grace Eda Baker, Elizabeth Floyd, Olivia Haller, Adrian Iglesias, Amber James, Madeline Mooney, Colton Needles, Axandre Oge, Thomas Shuman, and Aron Spellane. The Seagull also features original music by Simon Kiser.
On a summer’s evening, at a makeshift theater by a lake, a young writer’s new work is performed. In the wake of its spectacular failure, its audience – all connected by love – confront their own regret, grief, mortality, pettiness and loneliness. The Wheel Theatre Company’s new adaptation of Chekhov’s comedy is an ode to our first drafts and our failures, to our most bewildering infatuations, to our futile, comic search for reason and to our inexplicable ability to endure.
The Seagull runs at DC Arts Center 2438 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009. Performances are March 14-30, 2019 at 7:30pm & 3:00pm.
Tickets are $20 can be purchased online at www.thewheeltheatre.org or at the door on the day of the performance.
