Aaron Posner is an American playwright known for his loose adaptations of classic plays. His version of A. P. Chekhov’s Seagull (1896), Stupid Fucking Bird (2013) is more a personal interpretation of Chekhov than a classic adaptation. The play has been staged more than 200 times in theatre in America and abroad.

"Despite its apparent rebellion from the original, Posner's bitingly humorous and deeply sensitive adaptation comes closer than other adaptations to the complexity of emotions in Chekhov's play. Posner turns a classic writer often treated with formal reverence into a mirror that shows in detail all that is new about the unhappiness of people nowadays (much more obsessed with this theme), but also what is timeless (the love that disrupts our lives, the suffering of everyday life)."

New York Times

I think theatre is authentic when it hits you in a part of your consciousness. I believe enormously in a theatre of the living and the human universal.

One comes to the theatre for revelation and reflection. One comes for the real life of the actors and the story of the characters.  Stupid Fucking Bird is a "very hot" show.

"I do not feel authentic," says Sorn, and sometimes we all feel the same. In today's world, the struggle to live authentically and to let go of ideologies and false values is stronger than ever. And the fulfilment of love seems to have become an obsolete and ridiculous goal.
