Anton Chekhov wrote this. He is probably one of the most famous dramatists of our time so I'd hardly call anything he wrote, especially The Seagull, trivial. Chekhov’s play is rich in complex, contradictory characters and requires a large ensemble cast. It is often considered one of the first plays in modern drama to establish the pre-eminence of character over action. In other words, as Chekhov’s own summary emphasizes, there is “little action”, but instead, an emphasis on character development, emotion, relationships and feelings.
