An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by the older generation. A young actor wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how inadequate love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and hilarious reinvention of Chekhov’s The Seagull, the timeless battle between young and old, past and present, unrequited desires and selfish aims, is played out within a modern framework. Stupid Fucking Bird will tantalize and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.
Winner of the Charles MacArthur Award for New Play or Musical in 2014.
“The bird may be stupid, but this is one smart play.” ~~Broad Street Review
