A staggering work of heartbreaking, stupid f*cking genius. - Time Out Chicago
Stupid F*cking Bird runs
Jan 19 through Feb 19
Fridays & Saturdays 8:00
Dev loves Mash. Mash loves Con. Con loves Nina. Nina loves Trig. But so does Emma. Thus, the stage is set for sidesplitting heartache. An irreverent and unabashedly provocative riff on Chekhov’s classic tale of the timeless battle between young and old, past and present, amidst the search for the true meaning of it all - only this time, convention gets shot to f*cking hell.
