  • Stage West - Life Sucks.  by Aaron Posner October 12, 2017 - November 12, 2017 Info Tickets

    Life is, like, really hard sometimes. It’s hard to be the hot chick everyone wants, but no one understands. Or the not-so-hot chick with the heart of gold. Or the middle-aged guy insightful enough to see the cavernous depth of his own failings.  Stage West presents Life Sucks., a quirky, charming, and deeply human comedy which is the next installment in Aaron Posner’s Chekhov cycle, beginning a 5-week regional premiere run on Thursday, October 12.

    The Chicago Sun-Times said “…Posner’s latest contemporary riff on the work of Anton Chekhov…altogether wise, profoundly humane, hilarious, quirky, endearing and, in countless clever ways, brilliantly faithful to its source.”
