This fall Culture Project will present Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, featuring an adaptation by Thomas Kilroy.

Directed by Max Stafford Clark, previews will begin Oct. 3 prior to an official opening Oct. 13. Trudie Styler will star.

Joining Styler will be Rufus Collins, Alan Cox, Stella Feehily, Slate Holmgren, Rachel Spencer Hewitt, Ryan David O’Byrne, Amanda Quaid, Tim Ruddy and Kenneth Ryan.

Kilroy’s version of The Seagull, press notes state, is a "reappraisal of Chekhov’s first great comedy, a story of a distinguished actress and her passionate lonely son.… Set in late 19th century Ireland during the time of the National Land League, a political movement advocating for poor tenant farmers, Thomas Kilroy unearths fascinating parallels to the shifts in Russian society that inform Chekhov’s original. This acclaimed adaptation illuminates the play’s universal themes while revealing new social and political angles."

The production will have scenic design by Peter Hartwell with costume design by Ilona Somogyi and lighting by William Hansen.



Show times will be Tuesday at 7 PM, Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at the Culture Project, 45 Bleecker Street (at Lafayette Street).

Tickets are $75, and student tickets are $25. For more information call (212) 925-1806.
