Lightning Jar Theatre
A modernisation of the Chekhov classic, The Seagull: Irreverent, cheeky and heartfelt. Dev loves Mash who loves Con who loves Nina who loves Trig who loves Emma – no one seems happy but everyone’s giving life a damn good crack.
An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A nubile young actress wrestles with an ageing Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. STUPID FUCKING BIRD will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.
