Online via Zoom
Current UC Berkeley students of any major are invited to audition for a virtual production of Aaron Posner's Stupid F##king Bird and a workshop performance of Newsflash, an original one-act musical. For more information, please visit the TDPS Callboard. Synopsis of Stupid F##king Bird: In this hilarious, irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, an aspiring director rebels against the art of his mother's generation while a young actor vies with an aging celebrity for the attention of an acclaimed writer. Utilizing multiple performative lenses, the play examines questions of art, love, loss, and the eternal (and elusive) pursuit of happiness. Synopsis of Newsflash: This vignette follows three recent college graduates of different backgrounds vying for the same internship at a big New York City newspaper publication. As the highly accomplished candidates converse in the waiting room, they learn more about what truly matters in life more than they ever did in college.
