Helen Hayes and Barrymore Award-winning writer-director Aaron Posner (The Chosen) mounts an encore performance of his latest play at the always-innovative Woolly Mammoth Theatre after its runaway success last summer. Helmed by the company's artistic director Howard Shalwitz, this admittedly loose and frequently irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull follows a famous actress whose son, an aspiring theater director, wants make a name for himself on his own. But when his muse, the lovely Nina, falls for his mother's lover, all kinds of romantic and artistic disappointment ensue. Posner turns the original play's famous subtext into scenes and songs, calling Stupid F***ing Bird "a rough-and-tumble meta-theatrical mash-up." Learn More

*By Michael Hollinger
Directed by John Vreeke
Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his typist continues to take dictation, causing great consternation from his wife, his publisher and the general public. Where are these words coming from?
A drama about the writing process, creativity and love — with a little punctuation thrown in for good measure.
Featuring Susan Lynskey, Helen Hedman and Paul Morella.
