TRENTON—Some days we’re pretty sure that life sucks. Other days we might feel that life is full of beauty and wonder. If that sounds familiar, you’re likely to enjoy the Michigan Premiere of Life Sucks by Aaron Posner at Open Book Theatre, running September 8-30.

Individual tickets are only $20, or $15 for students or seniors, with tickets for the opening night show and gala at $30 each. Tickets can be purchased online at openbooktc.com. More information can be found online or by calling 734 288-7753. Life Sucks is the first show in the company’s fourth season, and you can save money by purchasing season tickets for all 5 shows: $85, $65 for students and seniors, or $100 for opening night.

Life Sucks focuses on a group of seven old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies as they collide and stumble their way towards a new understanding that life sucks! Or does it? The play invites the audience along on the journey in an interesting way, often asking them to literally be part of the conversation. The show features Joshua Brown as Vanya, Taylor Morrow as Sonia, Jonathon Davidson as Aster, Dale Dobson as Professor, Caitlin Morrison as Ella, Linda Rabin Hammell as Babs and Mandy Logsdon as Pickles. Krista Schafer Ewbank directs. Harley Miah is designing the lights. Danielle Gilbert is stage managing.
