Stupid F**cking Bird
Bruka Theatre
99 N. Virginia St.
Reno, NV 89501
May 19 - Jun 17, 2017
Details: 775-323-3221
Bruka Theatre presents the classicly twisted dramedy Stupid F**king Bird as the 6th play of the 2016/17 Season. What it means to be human and how we desperately yearn to connect to something that gives our existence purpose is at the root of Stupid F**king Bird, Aaron Posner’s brilliant adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s masterpiece The Seagull--a story about love and loss, life and death, art and artifice. In this edgy, funny and contemporary retelling of an old story, Posner has discovered the new forms that Chekhov’s protagonist called for over a century ago, breaking down barriers between what is real and what is imaginary. Directed by Holly Natwora who studied at Columbia University with some of the most innovative director’s in the American theatre, and performed by a talented cast of exceptional local artists, Stupid F**king Bird will keep audiences riveted as they watch the hopes and dreams of Chekhov’s characters reflect back their own glorious lives, warts and all.

Spectators are invited to “finire di mangiare” – or “eat up” as the Italians say with plenty of delicious foods like chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs, meat ravioli with Bolognese, tortellini Eldorado, Gnocchetti pesto, Italian sausage and peppers, fried ravioli, fried calamari and the ever-famous mushroom ravioli with porcini cream sauce. Complete your meal with a delicious dessert of homemade gelato, cannolis or Nutella ricotta Crespo, a sweet ricotta crepe with strawberries and Nutella drizzle.
