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.
