The Big Deal: Stage West Presents Life Sucks

by Gila Espinoza 11 Oct 2017 8:32 AM

Stage West presents the regional premiere of “Life Sucks,” a modern adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya.” Life can be really, really hard. Just ask the beautiful woman desired by all but understood by none. Or the homely girl with a heart of gold. Or the middle-aged man insightful enough to see the cavernous depth of his own failings. Written in the Chekvoian style, the play about love and longing is both tragic and comic. “Life Sucks” runs through November 12, at Stage West but win this Big Deal and receive a pair of tickets for the Saturday, October 21, performance.

Be sure you take the time now to sign up for our other Big Deals this week. Enter to win tickets to Verdigris Ensemble’s “The Velveteen Rabbit” concert at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Plano. If you prefer animal adventures with a little bit more bite then enter to win family tickets to the Dinosaur Live exhibit at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney.
