The Seagull at Derby Theatre
Anyway, it turned out to be a very enjoyable evening. The cast were great - and included one of our favourite 'locals' John Elkington who we last saw in Of Mice and Men at Nottingham Playhouse. My only quibble would actually have been with Chekhov himself - I would have ended the play with the dramatic off-stage gunshot, but then I'm not a famous Russian playwright.
This production of The Seagull was a co-production between Headlong Theatre, The Nuffield, Southampton and Derby Theatre.
