Current Production

The Seagull by Anton Chekhov

Axial Theatre in Pleasantville will open its 16th season with a mainstage ensemble production of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, a revival of one the seminal works of world literature.  Axial Theatre founder and artistic director Howard Meyer, the director of the play, notes that Axial has decided to expand its original mission to include classics and revivals that are relevant to the issues of today. He notes, "We chose this work because the themes of the late 19th century Russian classic resonate with the same power as they did over 100 years ago: the frustration of pursuing a career in the arts; the potential poisons of fame; the obsessive quality of unrequited passion." The Seagull was once called "one of the greatest events in the history of Russian theatre and one of the greatest new developments in the history of world drama."

Previews are November 7th at 8pm and November 8th at 2pm.

The gala opening night is November 8th at 8pm, followed by a talk back with the creative team.  The show will run Fridays through Sundays unti November 23rd.
