Silverthorne’s second season production goes out on a limb (literally). Stupid Fucking Bird is rightly described by playwright Aaron Posner as “a sort of adaptation of Chekhov’s The Sea Gull.” The familiar characters are there in all their tortured glory, even if the names are slightly modified. The themes of thwarted ambition and family conflict are played out in this thoroughly contemporary and achingly funny piece which leaves no doubt about the comedic genius of both Posner and his prototype. In this irreverant remix, Posner stages a dysfunctional family's timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. "Like the play that inspired it, this adaptation offers a unique glimpse at the state of the theatrical art form and more broadly, the difficult pursuit of art and creativity."

In this third show of Silverthorne's season, Chapatti, the only thing preventing Dan from committing suicide is his dog, Chapatti. His faithful companion cannot fill the hole in his life caused by the death of his life-long companion. In this little-known piece full of sharp humor and prickly compassion, playwright Christian O’Reilly introduces Betty, a similarly lost soul, with unpredictable consequences. An unexpected spark begins this warm and gentle story that mixes humor & despair to explore what happens when chance brings together two lost souls. “A mix of zesty self-narration and beautifully limned scene work... leaves you cheering for these two characters’ hard-won moments of happiness."
