Set in a rural Russian house, the plot focuses on the romantic and artistic conflicts among an eclectic group of characters. Fading leading lady Irina Arkadina has come to visit her brother Sorin, a retired civil servant in ailing health, with her lover, the successful hack writer Trigorin. Her son, brooding experimental playwright Konstantin Treplev, adores the ingenue Nina, who in turn is mesmerized by Trigorin. Their interactions slowly lead to the moral and spiritual disintegration of each of them and ultimately lead to tragedy.

The Royal Courth Theatre production of Anton Chekhov's play, which is a new version by Christopher Hampton

For The Record:

The Royal Court Theatre’s production of “The Seagull” opened in Jan 2007.  Ms Thomas is reprising the role of Arkadina, which won her an Olivier Award in 2007.
