PRESS RELEASE: Laura Rikard brings Chekov’s The Seagull to Brown University

“Any idiot can face a crisis-it’s day to day living that wears you out” – Anton Chekhov

A play is performed on the shore of a lake. Its young idealistic author is devastated when his work is mocked by his family and friends. Passions and jealousies rise as his beloved gives her heart to his rival. With a hint of absurdist humor and melancholy, The Seagull explores our unquenchable human desire to live an extraordinary life.
