Take a look at highlights from Serenbe Playhouse’s lakeside production of The Seagull, directed and adapted by Elizabeth Dinkova. The site-specific production takes place at Peek Lake, located near Serenbe’s Wildflower Meadow.
“As a director, I do work about what it means to live freely and to live fully. Every immigrant leaves their country for that reason. Every artist creates for that reason, and that’s the most palpable dream in The Seagull,” Dinkova says.
“It’s a play about artistic rebellion, about art’s power to inspire us to free ourselves from the restrictions of society, to ignite us to fully live our lives, to confront what’s dangerous and wild and beautiful within us,” she continues. “Art that awakes the dangerous, passionate hunger to live in that space between dreams and reality that Constance’s play breaks open. This version is angry, raucous, dark, funny, with love triangles, wild art, explosive confrontations. This play with music is an edgy contemporary take, taking place in the world and with the people of today, in which the artist’s imagination, through music, dance and magic, opens the door into another dimension. No better place to do it than with the rebels in the woods at Serenbe.”
The cast includes Allan Edwards (Peter), Park Krausen (Irina), Shannon McCarren (Nina), Lee Osorio (Boris), Brooke Owens (Masha), Skye Passmore (Simon), and Maythinee Washington (Constance).
