In this irreverent and very funny remix of Chekhov’s
The Seagull, an aspiring young director rampages against the 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 love, art and growing up can be. Winner of the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play, Stupid F@#*ing Bird will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness. Another great “sort-of adaptation” by Eugene native son Aaron Posner, award-winning writer of Who Am I This Time?, produced at OCT in 2013.
“...rush out and see Aaron Posner’s bright, jocular and not in the least offensive modernization of
The Seagull.” —The Los Angeles Times
