This is one of Cekhov’s most famous plays in Romania (having been staged over 30 times in the past few decades) and around the world. This Seagull brings a fresh approach, one that is challenging and carefully connected to the reality of our times, created by one of the most powerful voices of the new generation, Eugen Jebeleanu. His proposal is `a theatre of turmoil and vulnerabilities, a mix of passion, cruelty, a desperate will to live – in brief, a contemporary, surprising outlook on one of the most famous classical plays.
