Life Sucks

By  Aaron Posner


Girl Friday Productions and Open Eye Theatre Proudly Announce LIFE SUCKS. Also, it’s hilarious.

Girl Friday and Open Eye are partnering up to produce the regional professional premiere of LIFE SUCKS by Aaron Posner, a cheeky revisioning of Chekhov’s classic UNCLE VANYA that is at once irreverent, poignant, hopeful, highly theatrical, and yes, very funny. A contemporary reflection on love and loss, LIFE SUCKS just may lead you to the opposite conclusion.

Joel Sass directs an accomplished cast including Kirby Bennett, Georgia Doolittle, Elizabeth Efteland, Jonathan Feld, Sam Landman, Jim Ramlet, and Taj Ruler.
