In "Pigeon" the characters of Chekhov’s tragi-comedy "The Seagull" are transplanted to the contemporary big city (LGBT representation! Gentrification jokes! And hipsters!) to negotiate the highs and lows of life, love and art.
Events of the play occur between the third and fourth acts of Chekhov’s original drama (hence the III ½ of the title).
