DIE SEEMEEU (The Seagull) Drama
Classic Chekhov in Afrikaans. A group of people – the vain and self-absorbed theatre diva, Irene, her ailing and ageing brother, Piet, the self-doubting, insecure, lovelorn playwright and neglected son, Konstant, the naïve ingenue, Nina, the gloomy, alcoholic, dope-smoking Masha, the cheerful philosopher and witness to the drama, Dr Eugene, the brash farm manager, Elias, his long-suffering wife, Paulina, the puppy dog, poverty-stricken teacher, Simon, and the famous writer, Boors – grapple with inner fears, longings, doubts, regrets, recriminations and miseries – all of them of their own making.
