The show was developed during a residency in Northern Greece in March and April of 2008, and the piece made its US premiere at the Bushwick Starr on October 1st 2008.
The show is a stripped down, two actor version of “The Seagull” that explores the elegant symmetry of Chekhov’s classic. Using the play as a prism to the performance became an intimate look at theater, love, and loss in the modern age.
