Colorado native Steven Dietz reimagines Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull and its star-crossed lovers, Nina and Treplev. Dietz reinvigorates the play’s final scene in 43 alternative versions as the characters puzzle out what love is, whether they’re in it, and how to escape from it. Featuring five Colorado couples as variations on Nina and Treplev, this first-of-its-kind theatrical production was recorded in June/July 2020 at BETC East Studios.
