LET ME IN makes their return to the Toronto Fringe this summer with «The Bird Killer», a brand-new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s «The Seagull» directed by Patrick J. Horan.
This 55-minute re-vamp written by Justine Christensen re-focuses the original on 6 characters, all of whom are artists navigating their personal motivations for taking part in the entertainment industry — and what they'll sacrifice for their version of success.
Love, friendship, unrequitted love, and a twisted sense of hilarity permeate this modernization of a classic.
“Remember when things used to be nice, Kostya? We used to wear floral shirts.”
