A Bird is Coming to the Playhouse

Omaha, Neb.— Stupid F@#%ing Bird at the Omaha Community Playhouse will run October 13 – November 12, 2017 in OCP’s Howard Drew Theatre.
This “sort-of adaptation” of The Seagull by Anton Chekhov tells a story in which an aspiring young director battles against the art created by his mother’s generation. A young actress competes with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist and everyone discovers just how complicated life, art and success can be. This irreverent, modern and very funny remix of a classic play will incite you to consider how art, love and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.
Conrad, a young, would-be playwright, loves the young, aspiring actress, Nina; but
Nina’s infatuated with the successful playwright, Doyle Trigorn; Trigorin thinks Nina is
fascinating, but he’s already dating Emma, the famous actress who just happens to be
Conrad’s mom. Mash, Emma’s cook, is “in mourning for her life” because she’s head
over heels in love with Conrad, who barely notices that she exists, but Conrad’s best
friend Dev is ridiculously in love with Mash, and she couldn’t care less! Of course, there’s
also Dr. Sorn, Emma’s brother and Conrad’s uncle. He’s a generally agreeable fellow
who just wants everyone to get along and doesn’t understand why they can’t seem to do
so. Contains adult language and sexuality.
The plot and characters of Stupid F@#%ing Bird closely align with Anton Chekhov’s The
Seagull, which follows four main characters’ artistic and romantic conflicts. This script even  contains some lines directly from The Seagull, but set in a modern time period with modern day problems, but with all the flair and drama of a Chekhov original.
