Stupid F#@king Bird
April 21, 2017 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
By Aaron Posner; Sort of adapted from The Seagull by Anton Chekhov
Original Music by James Sugg; Directed by Michelle Gong
A young director and a young actor rage against an older generation of artists and everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art and growing up can be. In this funny, irreverent new remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, the timeless battle between young and old searches for the meaning of it all.
April 21‐22; 25-29, 2017 at 8 p.m.

“The show is smart enough to have it both ways: It mines The Seagull for classical heft even while giving it the bird.” — Washington Post
“Angsty, raw, and real, this play does not shy away from the hard, but well-discussed philosophical questions about art, reality, love and life and what it all means.” — BroadwayWorld.com
“…an accessible and unfailingly delightful jaunt into misery (or maybe we should say compromised happiness)…It’s absorbing in its every glance and revealing in its every sigh.” — Washington City Paper
