Stupid Fucking Bird

You’ve never seen Chekhov like this. Aaron Posner’s bold and cheeky update of “The Seagull” thrusts us into a country house where unrequited desire is drowned in equal parts alcohol and sarcasm. In true Chekhovian fashion, actresses, playwrights, doctors, and novelists bare their souls as they search desperately for the truth of love and art.

An aspiring young theatre director struggles to get out from under the shadow of his mother, a famous actress. Meanwhile, his young muse falls for his mother’s lover, and everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this contemporary riff on Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner skillfully remixes the renowned “subtext” of the classic play into exuberant and hysterical scenes and songs.
