Life Sucks

By Aaron Posner (Stupid F*cking Bird)
Sort-of-adapted from Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Brian Katz

In this brash reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies gather to grapple with life’s thorniest questions—and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Incurably lustful and lonely, hapless and hopeful, these seven souls collide and stumble their way towards a new understanding that Life Sucks! Or does it? Posner’s follow-up to his Stupid F*cking Bird (seen at SF Playhouse) is Mel Brooks meets Chekhov: lowbrow, dirty, passionate, and unexpectedly tender.

Passion

Lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine
Directed by Stuart Bousel

Bold, unexpected and thrilling, Passion is one of Stephen Sondheim’s most emotional works. Intimate, raw, erotic and dark, it explores universal, yet often unspoken, truths. Passion is set at a remote military outpost in 1863 Italy, where a handsome army captain, separated from his beautiful – but married – mistress, is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs about love when he becomes the object of the obsessive, unrelenting passions of Fosca, his Colonel’s plain, sickly cousin.
