Bird is the Word


An irreverent, sort of adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, the season opener for Actor’s Express features two generations of Russians passionately and hilariously agonizing over art, love and betrayal while sighing a lot, employing bird metaphors and cursing a blue streak. Angsty ukulele songs are played. Would Chekhov react with delight or despair? You decide.

Referred to as a “ripe mashup of mock and awe” in one review, the award-winning play, Stupid [expletive deleted] Bird, was written by Aaron Posner and is directed by Freddie Ashley, artistic director of Actor’s Express.

Runs through October 11; tickets start at $26.
