Beschreibung

As Cehkhov's other great plays no action in the classical sense of the word takes place in "The Seagull". This work, though apparently simple, is in fact very complex. The beginning created a potential for fierce conflicts and no less violent unravellings. The action does not develop even towards the end of the first act. The end of the final act does not bring any solution but rather complicates the situation which the characters are in. Unexpectedly, the drama ends and the author leaves audience to finish the rest.

The Seagull is apparently a play about love, but it shows how important it is to have a clear goal in life. A man who has a goal for his life is not broken but rather strenghened by unhappy love.
(by Tadeusz Leszczynski)

Review:
"Acting without exaggerated flamboyance and without attempts at stardom: convincing, well-rounded and respectable dramatic art. Creation by Dorota Kolak proves the truth of the thesis that the real greatness of an actor or actress could be discerned in small-time characters. Monika Chomicka is enormously suggestive in her character of Nina. Miroslaw Baka has excellently managed his role of the cynical writer Trigorin, who seduces not only by his literary talent."
