Life Sucks

Life Sucks. After taking aim at The Seagull with his “explosive” Stupid F*cking Bird, Aaron Posner is back with a critically-acclaimed and irreverent contemporary remix of Uncle Vanya.

In this brash reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, 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?

Wheelhouse Theater transfers their New York Times Critic’s Pick & Drama Desk Nominated production of Life Sucks to Theatre Row after a sold-out downtown run. Don’t miss your chance to see “Aaron Posner’s bitingly funny, unexpectedly touching play,” (NY Times), heralded as “One of the best plays of 2019!” (This Week in New York)
