January 6 – February 10, 2002 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 30 minutes

A world premiere

Goodman Artistic Associate Regina Taylor reinvents a classic, using Chekhov’s The Seagull as a springboard into new territory, and showing in the process how Chekhov’s innate understanding of human nature resounds across the ages. Transporting the action to an African American family gathering in the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina, playwright Taylor works with the heart of Chekhov’s story to explore the timeless themes of love, longing, and a new generation’s struggle to find its voice.
