Stupid F##king Bird, by Aaron Posner
Please note, this event has expired.
Aaron Posner’s “sort of adaptation” of The Seagull opens on May 31st! It’s an “irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix.” Winner of the 2014 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play!
Aaron Posner’s “sort of adaptation” of The Seagull brings together an established actress, her aspiring playwright son, his girlfriend (an aspiring actress on her own), and the mother’s lover – and well-respected writer, in a clash of young and old, past and present, with everyone in search of the true meaning of it all. As the Washington Post says, it’s “a funny, moving slugfest, a ripe mashup of mock and awe…sometimes it blows Chekhov up, and sometimes the play explodes with a genuinely Chekhovian release of emotion. The show is smart enough to have it both ways: It mines The Seagull for classical heft even while giving it the bird.
