Anton Chekhov's The Seagull was written in 1895 and first staged in 1896. It concerns the romantic and artistic conflicts between its four main characters, all dissatisfied with life. Some desire love. Some desire success. Some desire artistic genius. No one seems able to attain happiness. A play more character driven than plot driven, it remains a staple for theatrical production companies to this day.
