The Seagull

Michigan Shakespeare Festival
Baughman Theatre of the Potter Center, 2111 Emmons Rd,
Jackson, MI 49201
The beloved actress Arkadina has it all: beauty, fame, a wonderful relationship with the famous author Trigorin. She also has a son in his 20s whose dream is to be a playwright and whose very existence reminds the world that Arkadina is guilty of the one thing actresses cannot do: grow older. Anton Chekhov’s satiric comedy The Seagull skewers our views of both art and entertainment, and where the two of them combine. A darkly funny domestic comedy set at the turn of the last century, MSF’s 2017 production of The Seagull is from a new original translation, will be directed by AD Janice L Blixt, and will feature Artistic Associate Janet Haley as Arkadina and MSF favorite Shawn Pfautsch as Trigorin.
