The Seagull 07/22–08/13Buy Tickets
FERNDALE—Life is not a dress rehearsal…unless that’s all it is. Slipstream will present Chekhov’s The Seagull, a play about the way artists destroy themselves and each other, all for the sake of the art. The company brings its third season to a close by presenting the classic as a voyeuristic examination of the characters we are and the characters we build.
The production runs from July 22 through August 13, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $12, in advance only, and area available online at www.SlipstreamTI.com, by email at InsideTheSlipstream@gmail.com; for more information, call 313.986.9156.
The cast is lead by Kaitlyn Valor Bourque and Maxim Vinogradov as Nina and Constantin. Mandy Logsdon and technical director Ryan Ernst form the tumultuous duo of Arkadina and Trigorin, while Jackson Abohasira and Tiaja Sabrie step into the roles of the unhappily married Masha and Medvedenko. Completing the cast are Steve Xander Carson and Victoria Rose Weatherspoon as “The Directors.” The set is designed by Ryan Ernst, who also designs the lights. The costumes and direction are by Bailey Boudreau, with Victoria Rose Weatherspoon serving as assistant director.
