The Seagull - Chekhov

A seagull lives happily by the sea until a hunter comes by and out of boredom destroys it.

Nina kind of loves Konstantin - but runs away with Trigorin, who quickly disposes of her. Nina no longer has anything to live for and must live out her days as a wandering shadow. Konstantin, after realizing she will never come back and return his love...shoots himself.

Dorn: (Lowering his voice) Get Nina away from here somehow...The fact is, Konstantin Gavrilovich has shot himself...
