Apollinaire Theatre Presents STUPID F**KING BIRD, Now thru 4/6

Apollinaire Theatre Presents STUPID F**KING BIRD, Now thru 4/6In this irreverent, contemporary, and wickedly funny "sort of adaptation" of Chekhov's The Seagull, award-winning playwright Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all.

An aspiring young playwright rails against the art created by his mother's generation. A young would-be actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. A woman who wears black drinks vodka and contemplates the up side of giving up and giving in.

Chekhov's characters still philosophize on love, art, and the pursuit of happiness, but this time with music, meta-theatricality, and mad humor.

Aaron Posner (playwright) is a Helen Hayes and Barrymore Award-winning playwright and director. His adaptations include Macbeth (with Teller), The Chosen, My Name is Asher Lev, Sometimes a Great Notion (adapted from Ken Kesey), and many more. He is a founder and former Artistic Director of Philadelphia's Arden Theatre and has directed major regional theatres from coast to coast including the Folger Theatre, Seattle Rep, Alliance, Actor's Theatre of Louisville, Arizona Theatre Company, Milwaukee Rep, California Shakespeare Theatre and many, many others. He and Teller will be directing their adaptation of The Tempest this spring at the American Repertory Theater.
