Life Sucks

Price: $41-$44
The New Jewish Theatre closes its season with Aaron Posner's Life Sucks, which is adapted from Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. In Chekhov's original play, an extended family and their close friends stew over regrets and long for change while all occupying the same country house. Posner reassembles the pieces in a modern setting. He leaves the yearning and ennui intact as he guilds the characters with wryness and a tender playfulness. After all, the nineteenth-century Russian countryside may be a world (and a century and a half) away from modern America, but trying to make sense of life remains a time-honored occupation. Life Sucks is performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (May 23 to June 10) in the Wool Studio Theatre at the Jewish Community Center (2 Millstone Campus Drive, Creve Coeur; www.newjewishtheatre.org). Tickets are $41 to $44.
