By Anton Chekhov

Thu 18 Jan 2007

In a new version by Christopher Hampton.

The Seagull is one of the great plays about writing. It superbly captures the struggle for new forms, the frustrations and fulfilments of putting words on a page. Chekhov, in his first major play, stages a vital argument about the theatre which still resonates today.

The Royal Court pioneered asking leading playwrights to work on classic plays, as Christopher Hampton famously did with Uncle Vanya. He returns now with a new version of this classic, directed by Ian Rickson, in his last production as Artistic Director of the theatre.
