Stupid F**king Bird

Bruka Theatre presents the classicly twisted dramedy Stupid F**king Bird as the 6th play of the 2016/17 Season. What it means to be human and how we desperately yearn to connect to something that gives our existence purpose is at the root of Stupid F**king Bird, Aaron Posner’s brilliant adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece The Seagull--a story about love and loss, life and death, art and artifice. In this edgy, funny and contemporary retelling of an old story, Posner has discovered the new forms that Chekhov’s protagonist called for over a century ago, breaking down barriers between what is real and what is imaginary.
Directed by Holly Natwora who studied at Columbia University with some of the most innovative director’s in the American theatre, and performed by a talented cast of exceptional local artists, Stupid F**king Bird will keep audiences riveted as they watch the hopes and dreams of Chekhov’s characters reflect back their own glorious lives, warts and all. Stupid F**king Bird opens with a post-show opening night champagne reception and appetizers from the Wild River Grille on May 19, 2017. The show runs weekly Thursday through Sunday through June 17, 2017. Evening shows begin at 8:00 pm (Artist night is Wednesday June 14, 2017. ALL TICKETS are $10 for Artist Night.) There are two Sunday matinees on May 21 & June 4*. The matinees begin at 2:00 PM and the June 4 matinee is followed by a talk back with the company and our audience. The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. Suggested for ages 16 and up.
