NEW YORK, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Actress and producer Trudie Styler is to star in a New York stage production of Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull," producers announced.

The adaptation by Thomas Kilroy is to be directed by Max Stafford Clark. This version of the classic play is set in late 19th-century Ireland during the time of the National Land League, a political movement advocating for poor tenant farmers.

Previews are to begin at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at the Culture Project on Bleecker Street in Manhattan Oct. 3, with opening night set for Oct. 13. The play co-stars Rufus Collins, Alan Cox, Stella Feehily, Slate Holmgren, Rachel Spencer Hewitt, Ryan David O'Byrne, Amanda Quaid, Tim Ruddy and Kenneth Ryan.

"Thomas Kilroy's version of 'The Seagull' is a reappraisal of Chekhov's first great comedy, a story of a distinguished actress and her passionate lonely son. Trudie Styler will play that actress under the direction of Max Stafford Clark," a news release said.

Styler is married to British rock icon Sting.
