«Stupid Fucking Bird»
by Aaron Posner
sort of adapted from «The Seagull» by Anton Chekhov
original music by James Sugg
directed by Kirsten Brandt
September 14-October 15, 2017
South Bay Premiere

This is Chekhov — like you’ve never seen it before. Award-winning playwright Aaron Posner’s bold, raucous, contemporary riff on «The Seagull» moves the Chekhov work to a country house where unrequited desire drowns in sarcasm and alcohol. Actresses, writers and even a ukulele-playing cook all bare their souls as they struggle to find the truths of life. And everyone discovers the disappointments of art, love and growing up in this skillful remix of Chekhov’s classic.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sundays (no show on Sept. 17). Tickets are $19-$42. Learn more at cltc.org/sfb.
