At the heart of the show lie the relations between the American playwright Tennessee Williams and the characters of A. P. Chekhov’s play 'The Seagull'. At the end of his life Tennessee Williams created an independent version of the Chekhovian story.

So it happened! Why do events occur, how do they occur? Is it possible to change the course of events? And why? We look at life fr om the writer’s perspective, we see creativity, love and death.

Kate Mendeloff was born in Saint Louis, Missouri, in 1954. She graduated fr om the director’s department of Yale’s Theatre School.

In 2000 she became the initiator of festival ARB ARTS in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Since then she is the art director of the theatre Arb Arts, which was recognized by critics for productions with a particular use of the environment. In these performances the creativity of the actors is tied up with the rhythms of nature. The performances are played “in nature”, wh ere spectators can literally “follow” the action that unfolds in a natural environmental space.
