Profoundly humane, hilarious, quirky, endearing and, in countless clever ways, brilliantly faithful to its source.

Why See Life Sucks?


Chekhov reimagined

After riffing on The Seagull with Stupid F**cking Bird, playwright Aaron Posner updates Uncle Vanya to the modern day in Life Sucks, a hilarious examination of ennui in the age of gym memberships and that always elusive perfect life-work balance. The plot and character names remain more or less the same, but Posner steers Vanya's narrative into new and unexpected direction, and infuses the action with a sly dose of meta-humor. The tone is set within the show's opening moments, when the cast announce to the audience just what kind of play they'll be watching.  

Life Sucks received its world premiere at Washington's Theater J in 2015. This Riffe Center production is produced by CATCO.
