Multigenerational love triangles and artistic differences explode with comic and tragic consequences in this provocative riff on Chekhov’s classic.

Conrad, an aspiring avant-garde artist, longs for two things: the approval of his movie-star mother, Emma; and the love of his leading lady, Nina. Unfortunately, Nina falls for Emma’s lover, the renowned novelist Trigorin. And so, the f##king game of life is on! Love, death, beauty, despair and one unfortunate seagull collide as the characters strive to discover the true meaning of it all.

Director Michael Mufson said, “This play is a profound expression of the frustrations young people are feeling about the prospect of their future in a world wracked by extreme climate events, extreme political cruelty and extreme economic uncertainty. Poser pulls it off with surprising humor, wit, quirkyness and many layers insight into our human longing for love and connection.”

Stupid F**king Bird is a tour de force that promises to challenge preconceptions and leave audiences contemplating the profound questions that have resonated through the ages. Under Michael Mufson’s visionary direction, this production invites theater enthusiasts to experience a fresh, thought-provoking take on classic themes that continue to shape our lives.
