ABOUT THE SHOW
STUPID FUCKING BIRD
by Aaron Posner
directed by Ron May
March 12 - 26, 2016
at Helen K. Mason Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Phoenix

It’s THE SEAGULL. Just…on steroids.
You’ve never seen Chekhov like this. Irreverent, contemporary, smart, inventive, and very, very funny, Aaron Posner’s bold and cheeky sort-of update of Anton Chekhov’s 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. STUPID FUCKING BIRD skillfully remixes the renowned “subtext” of the classic play into exuberant and hysterical scenes and songs. “How does one have Chekhov speak to 21st-century America? See this production. I can only imagine Chekhov’s delight were he to see his play so wisely reinvented.” – LA Weekly
