Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Anya Reiss dazzles us once again with a fresh, colloquial, sexy and downright perceptive new version of The Seagull that brings Chekhov’s earliest major play recognisably close to home and up-to-date." - Telegraph

"This is the first time that Reiss has attempted an adaptation of one of the classic writers and it is an assured beginning. Her witty, understated rendering captures perfectly the dark comedy of the various love triangles." - What’s On Stage

"Now The Seagull has been Anglicized and pulled into the 21st century by award-laden wunderkind Anya Reiss." - Independent

Sunday Times John Peter

The play has been flooded with light, like a room with the curtains drawn back.
Daily Mail Jack Tinker

The direct simplicity of this new translation … uncovers not only the nerve endings of Chekhov's restless malcontents but also their comic absurdities. It is, as he always intended, actually funny.
Weekly Standard
“Senelick . . . has done his job as scholar and translator nearly to perfection.”
