LIFE SUCKS is a loose adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s tragicomedy, Uncle Vanya. This funny and insightful play examines a strange assortment of characters all afloat on a sea of despair, searching and thrashing about for love’s deliverance. All are in love, but with the unattainable. Beauty and mystery are sought—that special glimmer of light that one desperately wants, but cannot quite capture. [MATURE AUDIENCES – LANGUAGE & ADULT CONTENT]
