Stupid Fucking Bird
by Aaron Posner, directed by Michael Michetti
sort of adapted from “The Seagull” by Anton Chekhov
June 19 – July 27, 2014

A Co-production with The Theatre @ Boston Court

In this irreverent remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, an aspiring young director rails against art created by his mother’s generation, a nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist, and everyone discovers just how disappointing life, art, and growing up can be. Chekhov’s characters still ruminate on love, revolution and the pursuit of happiness, but this time with a lot more snark as the subtext bubbles to the surface. With music, meta-theatricality, and mad humor, playwright Aaron Posner beats The Seagull to a bloody fucking pulp.
