NECC Theater Present Posner Play

Submitted by on October 4, 2018 – 1:16 pm

Northern Essex Community College students Armando Belliard Harmon of Haverhill portrays Tragorean and Gwynnethe Glickman of Newbury portrays Mash in NECC’s adaptation of Aaron Posner’s play “Stupid F*cking Bird” which opens Friday, Oct. 5.

Love, art, and revolution take center stage when Northern Essex Community College’s Topnotch Players present Aaron Posner’s “Stupid F*cking Bird” in the Chester W. Hawrylciw Theater on the third floor in the Spurk Building on the Haverhill campus over two weekends beginning Friday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m.

The play will run Friday and Saturday Oct. 5 & 6 and 12 & 13 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 7, and Thursday, Oct. 11, at 4 p.m. General admission tickets are $12 and $10 for students and seniors.

Co-directed by Brianne Beatrice, NECC theater professor and advisor to the Topnotch Players, and NECC student Sarah Durning, the play portrays an aspiring young director who rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist and everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be.

In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s “The Seagull,”  Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. The play will tickle, tantalize, and incite audience members to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel their own pursuit of happiness.
