BWW Review: SEAGULL at Steppenwolf Theatre Company Photo BWW Review: SEAGULL at Steppenwolf Theatre Company

Peyankov’s adaptation is direct, self-aware, and rife with dry (extremely dry) humor. The ennui that pierces SEAGULL is deeply and obviously felt throughout this adaptation of the text. References to Chekhov’s native Russia abound in Peyankov’s script, but the language feels modern and direct.
