Written by Anton Chekhov, adapted by David French
Directed by Dwayne Brenna
There was a pervading sense of doom among the Moscow Art Theatre cast at the opening of Anton Chekhov’s play The Seagull on Dec. 17, 1898. Several of the actors had to be sedated with Valerian drops. Then, in the middle of the first act, the unexpected happened. As one audience member wrote in a letter to Chekhov afterwards, “In the first act something special started, if you can so describe a mood of excitement in the audience that seemed to grow and grow.” (Quoted in Benedetti 1999, p. 86). As the play came to an end that evening, the audience sat silently, digesting what it had seen, for a long moment before erupting into thunderous applause. Chekhov’s friend Nemirovich-Danchenko later compared the sound and emotion of that moment to a dam breaking.
