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

Written and directed by Ping Chong and Sara Michelle Zatz, a Bethesda native, in collaboration with the featured performers, _Inside/Out _showcases the firsthand experiences of members of the disability community. Individual histories are interconnected in a script performed by the participants themselves, giving voice to individuals whose stories frequently go unheard.
_Inside/Out _is part of Ping Chong & Company’s Undesirable Elements, an ongoing series of oral history theatre works exploring key issues of identity in different communities. Each production is made with a partner organization in a host community, with local participants testifying about their real lives and experiences.
Renowned New York theatre company Ping Chong & Company was founded in 1975 to create and tour innovative works of theatre and art that explore the intersection of race, history, culture, and technology in the modern world. Inside/Out was commissioned by VSA – The International Organization on Arts and Disability. VSA is an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
