Written and Directed by Aaron Posner
An Irreverent Variation On Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya

It’s tough being the gorgeous woman desired by all but understood by none. Or the homely girl with a heart of gold. Or the middle-aged man insightful enough to see the depth of his own failings. In fact, Life Sucks for everyone in Aaron Posner’s poignant, hilarious new play about love and longing. A world premiere production from the Helen Hayes Award-winning playwright of Stupid Fucking Bird and the adapter/director of Chaim Potok’s The Chosen.
Running time: 2 hours and 10 minutes, including a 15 minute intermission.
