Stupid Fucking Bird

This is Chekhov — like you’ve never seen it before. Award-winning playwright Aaron Posner’s bold, raucous, contemporary riff on The Seagull moves the action to a country house where unrequited desire drowns in sarcasm and alcohol. Actresses, writers and even a ukulele-playing cook all bare their souls as they struggle to find the truths of life. And everyone discovers the disappointments of art, love and growing up in this skillful remix of the classic.
