THE REVIEWSMontreal Gazette: a "brilliant coup de théâtre" served by an "ace acting team in top form"
CBC Radio: “Peter Hinton makes Chekhov's The Seagull Canadian in witty, finely acted reset”
Charlebois Post: “rich, quirky, vibrant, and deeply satisfying” & “The production's highest achievement is thus that it felt not like an event but a place. A place you wanted to be.”
The Rover: “The cast is not only outstanding, they sometimes take one’s breath away”
The Metropolitain: “Highly entertaining” & “a vivid, updated production”
By a lake, in the country, a summer night inspires a family of artists to love, to live and to question the real exchange of art, passion and experience. Chekhov’s masterpiece is brought to life in a new version by visionary director and playwright Peter Hinton, starring two of Canada’s most celebrated leading ladies, Lucy Peacock and Diane D’Aquila. The Seagull is heartbreaking and comic, funny and bittersweet – a modern take on a classic play for our times.Diane D’AquilaPeter Hinton
