STUPID F*CKING BIRD

By
Aaron Posner,
sort of adapted from THE SEAGULL by Anton Chekhov
Directed by
Patricia Boyette
Presented by University of Wisconsin-Madison’s
Department of Theatre and Drama / University Theatre

In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, and the past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. Original songs composed by James Sugg draw the famously sub-textual inner thoughts of Chekhov’s characters explicitly to the surface. STUPID F*CKING BIRD incites us to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel our own pursuit of happiness. Winner of the 2014 Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding New Play or Musical.

The cast features UW students Christian Stevenson (Con), Jamie Herb (Nina), Maddie Wilinski (Emma), Steffen Silvis (Sorn), Zhiyun Zhao (Mash), Manuel Angel (Dev), and Malcolm Halsey-Milhaupt (Trigorin).

“A savvy, petulant blitz… a funny, moving slugfest, a ripe mashup of mock and awe.” –Washington Post

“Theatrically audacious.” New York Times (Critic’s Pick)
