About the show

Stupid Fucking Bird is an irreverent, anarchic and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, replete with original songs. In this production, Chekhov’s classic tale of love and longing, missed opportunities and misplaced dreams is run through a post-theatrical shredder to be set down in the hubbub of 21st century life. It explores the difficult pursuit of art and creativity and what it means to be an artist and asks the ultimate question: how far will we go to find happiness?

A uniquely Australian take on this award-winning American work, this production is directed by Eva Grace Mullaley, a Widi woman from the Yamatji Nation in WA and former Artistic Director of Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company.
