The New Colossus

The New Colossus 

When: May 19-June 4 2016
Price: $5-$20



The characters in The New Colossus, Tamara Kissane's new version of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, have changed quite a bit after entering the twenty-first century. Constantine, the moody young playwright in the original version, is now the PewDiePie-inspired Konrad, making major coin on YouTube. His mom's a B-movie actress on the skids, and her consort, Trigorin—oops, make that Trig O'Ryan—bears a striking resemblance to trashy thriller novelist David Baldacci. Now the whole high-maintenance crew is at the beach house for some R&R, and one has brought along a gun. Uh-oh. Dana Marks directs this Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern premiere. —Byron Woods
