Silverthorne’s second season production goes out on a limb (literally). Stupid Fucking Bird is rightly described by playwright Aaron Posner as “a sort of adaptation of Chekhov’s The Sea Gull.” The familiar characters are there in all their tortured glory, even if the names are slightly modified. The themes of thwarted ambition and family conflict are played out in this thoroughly contemporary and achingly funny piece which leaves no doubt about the comedic genius of both Posner and his prototype.
Toby Vera Bercovici directs this production wihich features Myka Plunkett (Nina), Michael Greehan (Conrad), Lisa Abend (Emma Arkadina), Michael Schurter (Doyle Trigorin), Linda Tardif (Mash), Julian Findlay (Dev), and Thom Griffen (Sorn).

In this irreverant remix, Posner stages a dysfunctional family's timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. "Like the play that inspired it, this adaptation offers a unique glimpse at the state of the theatrical art form and more broadly, the difficult pursuit of art and creativity."
