THE­ATRE The Seag­ull and Other Birds

Amer­i­cani­tis – which con­tem­po­rary the­atre company Pan Pan re­cently dubbed “the baby steps of nar­cis­sism” – is the banner for Gavin Quinn’s new in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Chekhov. Given that Amer­i­cani­tis (or neuras­the­nia) was an ner­vous af­flic­tion suf­fered by af­flu­ent city dwellers, and Pan Pan has al­ready opened a ver­sion in China, this ought to be a play­fully anx­ious view of mod­ern liv­ing.
