LIFE SUCKS

September 9 – November 6, 2016

Written by Aaron Posner
Directed by Ensemble Member Andrew White

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?

From the mind of Aaron Posner, author of Stupid F*#king Bird, comes this brash and revelatory reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. Never has unhappiness been so much fun.

Highly Recommended. A cast of seven exceptional actors
