If you hate Chekhov, you'll love Stupid F#@%ing Bird. If you love Chekhov, it will thrill you. This play is a cage-match between the sacred and the profane. This play slaps “irreverence” onto the table and mainlines Monster Energy Blood into its throat. Stupid F#@%ing Bird is fresh, slangy, flippant, audacious, ungodly, insolent, funny as f#@k, contemptuous, pissed off at art itself, and under clear and present attack by its own protagonist. The story pits two generations against one another... the older: full of ungrateful, opportunity-rich, laissez-faire over-achievers; and the younger: full of opportunity-starved, passionate and doomed meaning-hunters. Dev loves Mash who loves Con who loves Nina who loves Trig who leads Emma on, all while Sorn watches in bemused, gin-soaked ennui. What do you do when the sheer terror of living rips a hole in you and your soul falls out? Will the very art of theater survive a single night's performance of this madness? This play is NOT your parents’ Seagull. This play is the 21st century in your face.
