ABOUT THE PLAY

 

THE STORY: 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?

 

“[LIFE SUCKS.] is altogether wise, profoundly humane, hilarious, quirky, endearing and, in countless clever ways, brilliantly faithful to its source…Posner has managed to find his own voice in the process, bringing a playful, far from cynical, fourth-wall-piercing originality to the story…” —Chicago Sun-Times.

 

“…adrenaline-fueled, hyper-aware…[Posner] sticks lovingly close to Chekhov’s plot…[He] gives huge and equal bearhugs to Chekhov’s absurd comedy and touching pathos while leaving room to banter with the audience…sassy yet heartfelt…” —The Washington Post.
