  1. The Seagull (trans. Stoppard) by Anton Chekhov. Adapted by Tom Stoppard   Directed by Bogdan Tabacaru Produced by Katrin Fegert   Synopsis   “It is life itself onstage with all its tragic alliances, eloquent thoughtlessness and silent sufferings - the sort of everyday life that is accessible to everyone and understood in its cruel internal irony by almost no one." (Anatoly Koni)   The Seagull, Anton Chekhov’s great classic, revolutionized theatre in the late 19th century. It is a heart-wrenching and darkly funny story about love, art and ill-fated ambition.    On his uncle’s estate in the Russian countryside, young writer Konstantin is preparing the performance of his first self-written play, hoping to finally impress his mother Irina, an ageing actress. But Drama begins to unfold as soon as the audience arrives at the little stage by the lake: Irina has brought her lover Trigorin, a famous writer, who is admired and envied by Konstantin. Nina, Konstantin’s girlfriend and star of his play, rapidly falls under Trigorin’s spell. Meanwhile, the poor teacher Medvedenko is trying to woo Masha, the estate manager’s daughter, who in turn is pining for Konstantin. Sure enough, the premiere of his play is a complete disaster and in the aftermath, Konstantin and his guests struggle with artistic failure and unrequited love, while trying to accept or escape their petty, unsatisfying lives.   Is The Seagull a heartbreaking tale about unhappy people and their shattered dreams? Or is it a hilarious satire? Anton Chekhov, the master of psychological realism, challenges us through his play to question the choices we make. In our Entity winter production, we explore Chekhov's serious and satirical intentions and the lives of his multi-layered, deeply conflicted characters in a modernized, timeless setting.   This amateur production of “The Seagull (trans. Stoppard)” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD a Concord Theatricals Company.   Performance Dates 28–30 November 2019, 20:00  19–22 February 2020, 20:00  Ticket sale for our February shows starts in December.   Venue Pepper Theater  Thomas-Dehler-Straße 12 81737 Munich (U5 Neuperlach Zentrum)   Tickets  €18 (€12 concessions) Reserve online: https://the_seagull.eventbrite.com   For further information, please check out our website:  https://entitytheatre.com/the-seagull-trans-stoppard

With the Prince trying to install order, this order lasts only briefly since the Montague clan risks further conflict by secretly gate-crashing the Capulets’ masked ball. Romeo, although pining for Rosaline, instantly falls in love with Capulet’s daughter, Juliet. While Capulet has arranged for Juliet to marry County Paris, she, too, falls in love with Romeo. With the help of Friar Laurence and Juliet’s nurse, the lovers arrange to be married the next day. The wedding takes place, and all seems well. Then tragedy strikes! Romeo attempts to halt a street fight which leads to the death of his best friend Mercutio and then Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin. Thus, Romeo is banished. Meanwhile Juliet’s father sets the wedding date for her and Paris. Juliet, desperate to avoid being married to Paris, seeks Friar Laurence’s help and feigns her own death. The message fails to reach Romeo, and believing Juliet dead, he takes his life in her tomb. Juliet wakes to find Romeo’s corpse beside her …   Adaptation and direction by Conny Loder Assistant direction by Julia Pflüger Produced by Ken Lawler   For further info, please check our website:   entitytheatre.com   Watch the trailer: youtube.com/watch?v=tUtouCpzbyE&feature=youtu.be   How to find us: entitytheatre.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Theatron_Map.png
