Stupid Fucking Bird by Aaron Posner
THIS PRODUCTION, WRITTEN BY AARON POSNER, TAKES US DEEP INTO CHEKHOV'S CATHARTIC LOVE QUADRANGLE AS IT ATTEMPTS TO DISCOVER, WITH META-THEATRICALITY, WHAT IT TRULY MEANS TO BE AN ARTIST, AND WHAT IT TRULY MEANS TO LOVE.

(New York, NY) - Stripped Scripts® ("Tomorrow In The Battle, an Ars Nova Fling), in association with Long Island City Artists Inc. and The Plaxall Gallery ("Garden Of Delights"), has announced that it will present Aaron Posner's STUPID F##KING BIRD, a satirical spin on the Chekhov's classic text, "The Seagull", directed by Adam Knight ("In The Room, "Naperville"), running July 6th - July 21st,  Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at The Plaxall Gallery (5-25 46 Avenue, Long Island City). www.strippedscripts.com

The play, written by Aaron Posner, reimagines Chekhov's classic text as a contemporary artist's journey attempting to find new forms of art by living in this present moment. The characters' stories are at once hysterical, tragic and cathartic as they desperately attempt to find out what it means to be an artist. This meta-theatrical experience, grounded in the disappointment inherent in growing up in the world we live in today, asks the question: Art, Love Happiness can we have it all?

LIC-A will curate a LIC-A member's exhibition  specifically themed to Stripped Scripts®' Stupid F##king Bird titled Yours, And Always, Only Yours. The exhibition will take place in The Plaxall Gallery's 12,000 sq ft warehouse space. This unique artistic experience will couple visual art with Aaron Posner's dynamic play, Stupid F##king Bird. Yours, And Always, Only Yours will open on July 5th, and will be on view until August 5th. Gallery hours: Thursday from 6pm-10pm, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm-6pm.
