Fort George Thursday Night Lecture Series

Join Ian Storey and Seth Tichenor as they present Wit & Wisdom: The Philosophical Significance Of Architecture in the Lovell Showroom at Fort George Brewery (1438 Duane Street).

We often think about the buildings and structures around us in fundamentally practical terms – their usefulness or economic value. But is this all there is to architecture?

Doors open at 6pm, and food & beverages are available. This event is all ages and there is no cover!

Stupid F#!*ing Bird

The Ten Fifteen Theater

Astoria’s Ten Fifteen Theater (1015 Commercial) presents a staged reading of Aaron Posner’s play Stupid F#!*ing Bird this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 15-17, 2022.

An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all.

The Friday and Saturday show are at 7:30pm, and the Sunday show is at 3:30pm, and includes a talkback immediately after the performance. Tickets $15 and are available online or at the door. Makes sure to check the theater website before the show for the latest COVID policies.
