    That is not a full sentence, is it? The two 'a' do not make sense.

    Chekhov's calling 'The Seagull' a comedy is a description that has puzzled critics, playgoers, and even directors.

    That works - I don't know if it's the right one.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That has to be it.
    Is that a game or something?
