Masquers Playhouse presents a Chekhov classic remixed for modern times

In this playful contemporary remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages the enduring battle between young and old, past and present, and the search for the true meaning of it all.

Stupid F**king Bird invites you to ponder how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness. 

The production stars Dan Allan, Michael Criscuolo, Kieran Cross, Shiv Harris, Juni Hernandez, Anna Oglesby-Smith, and Emma Simpson, and is directed by Jason Berner.

The story goes like this: An aspiring young playwright rails against the art created by his mother’s generation. A young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist, and everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be.

Aaron Posner is an American playwright and theatre director. He has directed over 100 productions at major regional theater companies nationwide. He was co-founder of the Arden Theatre Company in Philadelphia and was the artistic director of Two River Theater from 2006 to 2010.
