THE RAGE OF NARCISSUS

STUPID 

F*CKING

BIRD

by 

Aaron Posner

PLEASANCE THEATRE 

LONDON

21 APR - 17 MAY

FORGET THE SEAGULL. IT'S JUST ANOTHER STUPID FUCKING BIRD.

Con, angry young man and unpublished playwright, is writing a play for his girlfriend Nina. Nina, meanwhile is falling for the renowned author Doyle Trigorin, who happens to be dating Emma, an ex-hollywood star... and Con's mother. Masha, the family cook, is in love with Con. Dev, Con's best friend, is in love with Masha. No one is in love with Dev. And Sorn, Emma's brother and Con's uncle is very, very lonely. 

 

Oh and of course, there's a far too easily accessible gun in the house.

In this award winning, irreverent, moving and wonderfully f*cked up adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull, US playwright Aaron Posner delves deep to show just how funny and disappointing love, art, and growing up can be— especially when you're searching for meaning in a ridiculous world that just doesn't really seem to care.

Director Daniel Goldman returns to London following the award-winning Thebes Land (Off-West-End Best Production, Arcola 2017), with a stunning double bill of UK premieres from the Americas.

Praise for Aaron Posner's Stupid F*cking Bird

"The expletive smack in the middle of the title of Aaron Posner’s “sort of” adaptation of “The Seagull” is not there for decoration, or even provocation. It is wholly emblematic of Mr. Posner’s raw, theatrically audacious version of this Chekhov classic." New York Times

 "An anachronistic, ostentatiously metatheatrical approach to Chekhov's 1896 black comedy about moneyed artsy types who go looking for love in precisely the wrong places..." Chicago Reader

 "This propulsive and very funny production is going to be one of my favourite shows of the year. And I can say that even though we’re just over halfway through it!" Audrey Journal

 

"You really don't need to know the original text to enjoy this. You will love Stupid F*cking Bird!" Australian Stage
