Running time: Three hours including intermission and vodka toast 

Join The Seagull Project for their final rehearsal of Chekhov's great work The Seagull before leaving for their historymaking trip to Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The Seagull Project has the honor of becoming the first U.S. ensemble to be brought in as guests of the Ilkhom Theatre. With the aid of a grant from the U.S. Embassy (another historical first), their highly acclaimed production of The Seagull will be the centerpiece of the Ilkhom Theatre Festival. Share in this special evening and see how they've been exploring the play in exciting new ways—as if for the first time—by witnessing their final rehearsal in Seattle. Then send them off on their adventure with a vodka toast!

All ages welcome. Must be 21+ with valid I.D. for vodka toast.

SeagullThe Seagull Project was formed out of a passion for the great works of Anton Chekhov. Having met and collaborated on Seattle Shakespeare Company's wildly successful Threepenny Opera in 2011, the founding producers immediately sought a new collaboration; one which allowed the actors to take the time needed to create an ensemble and honor the work of Chekhov with bravery, honesty, simplicity, and elegance. In January of 2013, they opened The Seagull in ACT's Falls Theatre, garnering both audience and critical acclaim. In April of 2014, The Seagull Project will have the great distinction of becoming the first American ensemble in history to perform at the Ilkhom Theatre in Tashkent, Uzbekistan - a Seattle sister city. Upon their return, they will begin work on Chekhov's Three Sisters, which will be produced through the Central Heating Lab in 2015, ACT's 50th anniversary year.
