Please visit here https://ourauckland.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/articles/events/2020/05/chekhovs-the-seagull/ From Friday 8 May, over four weeks, Auckland Theatre Company (ATC) will deliver its first ever online play – Chekhov’s The Seagull – a new online version by Eleanor Bishop and Eli Kent, directed by Eleanor Bishop. Bringing a landmark piece of theatre to the 21st century, this production will be rehearsed, performed and broadcast all in the online space. The actors will have just one week per episode to read the script, learn their lines and rehearse, ready to broadcast on Friday of that week.Chekhov’s famous characters are reimagined as an extended Kiwi family congregating over Zoom. In a direct commentary of our world in lockdown, the characters are still searching for meaning in their lives while battling love, jealousy, dissatisfaction, dreams, hopes and plans – not to mention malfunctioning video calls! This drama all plays out in self-isolation and over virtual interactions with each other. This retelling of Chekhov’s classic The Seagull is created by a brilliant artistic team and stellar cast, all from their own bubbles. The creative team envisioned this project as a snapshot of our current Alert Level, so if our situation changes, so too will the characters.

Under this brand, ATC will deliver bespoke projects created especially for online platforms. Chekhov’s The Seagull will be presented in four 30-minute parts.
