About the Show

In this hilarious, irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, an aspiring director rebels against the art of his mother’s generation while a young actor vies with an aging celebrity for the attention of an acclaimed writer. Utilizing multiple performative lenses, the play examines questions of art, love, loss, and the eternal (and elusive) pursuit of happiness.


Current UC Berkeley students of any major are invited to online auditions for Stupid F##king Bird on Monday, January 25, 2021. Please visit the TDPS Callboard for details.
