About The Seagull

It's tough to live up to your parent's expectations, and tougher when your mom is a famous-and very critical-actress. Such is the plight of Arkadina's son, Konstantin, as he tries to make his mark as a playwright, while holding on to Nina, the woman he loves. Artistic temperaments abound as Arkadina, her lover (the famous author, Trigorin) and the rest of the charismatic cast fall in and out of love and the limelight in this darkly funny, tragic story by the master of modern drama. Anton Chekhov with a fresh translation by Project Gutenberg.
