December 2–11, 2021

The UR International Theatre Program inaugurates its occupancy of the UR’s new Sloan Performing Arts Center’s Smith Theatre with a production of Stupid Fucking Bird, Aaron Posner’s award-winning contemporary riff on Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece, The Seagull. Dev loves Masha, but Masha loves Con, who loves Nina. But Nina is infatuated with Trig (who's infatuated right back). Problem is Emma loves Trig...and she's Con's Mom! And, can imagine!  Does losing your heart mean losing your mind and losing your dreams?  What determines free will: you or the person who writes your story?  In this extraordinarily perceptive, funny, and moving contemporary re-invention of Chekhov’s classic, The Seagull, Aaron Posner creates indelible characters who will charm you, engage you and break your heart.   Stupid Fucking Bird celebrates the complexities of love and art, success and failure, and our enduring ability to survive them all.
