Chekhov’s classic (The Seagull) satirically spun in a modern setting. “Mr. Posner’s play is at its most trenchant and funny when it doesn’t just collapse the distance between Chekhov and today, but also encourages us to forget Chekhov entirely,” wrote The New York Times. “Eventually, we see the play and its characters with no filter whatsoever, so that their rubbed-raw hearts and egos more immediately, more uncomfortably mirror our own.”

Please sign up for a 15-minute slot on Friday or Saturday.

Please prepare a 1-2 minute monologue from a contemporary play (roughly the last 50 years).
