Welcome to Russia (use your imagination London!)

With your help Maria (sorry, Masha) uses live cinema, a killer soundtrack, a questionable Russian accent, and the only lines from the play she can remember to transport you to the world of one of Chekhov’s greatest plays. As her attempts to stage a career-defining performance prove futile Maria drowns her sorrows in Masha’s vodka, and the distinction between the actor and the role disintegrates.

We are left questioning whose story we are really watching, where does Masha begin and Maria end? A radical response to Chekhov’s play about failed dreams and the unavoidable disappointments of real life, The Seagull, Or Why Masha Always Wears Black explores the lengths we are prepared to go to to feel loved and be seen.

Credits 

Performed by Maria Teresa Creasey and Ezra Alexander.

Directed by Rebecca Reeves and Rory Foster.
