The Seagull


Some say that spring is the season of love. Some are falling out of love and others falling in love.

In the dramatic play, The Seagull, Florida State will reenact a love story on stage.

The Seagull is a play written by Anton Chekhov, and it tells a story of four characters and their relationship conflicts. In the play everyone is in love with someone, and that someone is in love with someone else, whom in return is in love with someone else. Confusing? What relationship is not?

In the play, “by a beautiful lake on an estate in the Russian countryside, the seagull, at first free is soon destroyed,” according to the play’s summary on Florida State’s website. This is a metaphor that can only be understood by those who saw the play.

So, come take a break from your relationship and uncover the mystery of the metaphor on March 23-April 1. It is recommended for an audience that is above the age of 13, and it will take place in Florida State’s Lab Theatre. The show time for March 23-24 is at 8 p.m., March 25 at 2 p.m., March 28-31 8 p.m., and April 1 at 2 p.m.

Tickets to journey through this romantic love triangle can be purchased through Florida State Fine Arts’ office at 850-644-6500, or by visiting Adult tickets are $20, senior tickets (62+) are $18, and student tickets are $10.
