About the Great Souls series
The Great Soul of Russia has been a program of The Seagull Project since the company’s inception. Originally built as a program to build dramaturgical knowledge regarding the work of Anton Chekhov, and to develop audiences leading to TSPs first production, The Seagull, the program has become a favorite in the company’s repertoire and has now proven steadfast for eight years. The program has featured six performances a year, featuring a variety of curators and short forms, all read by the very best actors in Seattle’s thriving theatre scene.
The Seagull Project is a performing arts ensemble consisting of 32 actors and a professional board that has produced all 4 major Chekhov plays, numerous vaudevilles, and regular readings of short story works of Anton Chekhov and writers inspired by Chekhov through Great Souls. All The Seagull Project’s mainstage programming has been performed in the Falls Theater at ACT in downtown Seattle, and has garnered them multiple awards, including the Gregory Award for Outstanding Production (The Three Sisters, 2014), as well as sending them to Uzbekistan to produce The Festival of American Culture East/West with the historic Ilkhom Theatre.”
