Stupid F**king Bird
An aspiring young writer rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, playwright Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all.
CONTENT WARNING: The play depicts brief moments of sexual content, references and depiction of suicide and mental illness, references of child loss, gun shot and the use of a stage gun.
Venue: State Playhouse
Performance Dates: April 20 - 22, 27 - 29 at 7:30pm and April 23 at 2:30pm
