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

When it comes to the environment, young Walter is far from enlightened. He’s a litterbug who believes sorting trash is a big waste of time. But one night, Walter dreams about a very different future. Filled with humor and fantasy, Walter’s dream is a wake-up call for him – and all of us – about what we need to do to protect and preserve the future of our planet.
