About this show

Conrad's desperate love for Nina might just be the death of him — if his imperious mother and her latest fling don't get there first.

Aaron Posner's award-winning, wry riff on Chekhov's classic The Seagull is satirically spun in a modern setting in Stupid F*cking Bird. The play tells the tale of unrequited love, missed opportunities, and misplaced dreams and sets it down squarely in the bustle of 21st century life. But the more that things change, the more that they really don't — and the artist frustrated by the emptiness of modern art, the dissatisfied young woman yearning for freedom, and the has-beens and never-weres of a passing generation all still wonder: "What are we doing here?"
