The Seagull  by Anton Chekhov

Presented at the Yale School of Drama

Iseman Theater, December 2014



"A very physical, energetic, and enjoyable production.... In the end, this Seagull is moving—but from the start it moves  -- the show boasts one of the quicker-seeming first acts I’ve seen at a School of Drama production...


(This) production throws as much energy, high spririts and variety at the classic text as one can imagine, finding the entertainment in all that existential ennui. Inspiring."                                                                   -- Donald Brown, New Haven Review
