The Wheel Theatre Company Presents A New Adaptation Of Chekhov's THE SEAGULL

Kennedy Center GUYS AND DOLLS, Kevin Chamberlin, And More Win Helen Hayes Awards

The Wheel Theatre Company announces their new adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull at the DC Arts Center in Washington, DC. This production runs for three weeks from March 14-30, 2019 and is adapted & directed by The Wheel's artistic director, Jack Read.

The cast features local DC performers Grace Eda Baker, Elizabeth Floyd, Olivia Haller, Adrian Iglesias, Amber James, Madeline Mooney, Colton Needles, Axandre Oge, Thomas Shuman, and Aron Spellane. The Seagull also features original music by Simon Kiser.

On a summer's evening, at a makeshift theater by a lake, a young writer's new work is performed. In the wake of its spectacular failure, its audience - all connected by love - confront their own regret, grief, mortality, pettiness and loneliness. The Wheel Theatre Company's new adaptation of Chekhov's comedy is an ode to our first drafts and our failures, to our most bewildering infatuations, to our futile, comic search for reason and to our inexplicable ability to endure.

The Seagull runs at DC Arts Center 2438 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009. Performances are March 14-30, 2019 at 7:30pm & 3:00pm.

Tickets are $20 can be purchased online at or at the door on the day of the performance.

The Wheel Theatre Company is a theatre company committed to producing works both new and rediscovered from all over the globe. They believe that no two performances are exactly alike; with every audience, there are new experiences, new sights and sounds, new thoughts and feelings. Together, performers and audience create an ensemble that will never again be in the same place at the same time. To this end, The Wheel is dedicated to telling stories about bringing human beings from all walks of life together.

Review: Essential Theatre's DISSONANCE An Essential Conversation About What Divides Us

The genius of “Dissonances” is the way that it reveals, and then gently dismantles, those walls we erect around ourselves, those unconscious fears that prevent us from really communicating and empathizing with people different from ourselves.  Both Duncan and Sandel create human beings we recognize instantly—their virtues intact, their flaws visible but never damning.
