Award-winning writer-director Aaron Posner's irreverent, contemporary and very funny remix of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull flies into Phoenix. Stupid F**king Bird follows a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, wants to make a name for himself on his own. But when his muse, the lovely Nina, falls for his mother's lover, all kinds of romantic and artistic disappointments ensue. Posner turns the original play's famous subtext into scenes and songs, calling Stupid F**king Bird "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up." This Stray Cat Theatre production at the Helen K. Mason Performing Arts Center mixes ambition, booze and sex into a heady (and hilarious) brew.
