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

Directed by Eddie Schwartz
Produced by Chrish Kresge
A traditional British murder mystery.
The cast of Boris’ budget repertory production of ‘Murder at Priorswell Manor’ are far more interested in their egos than the play, and disaster strikes when life imitates art and Boris’ wife is murdered on stage. A hilariously funny and ruthlessly satirical play about the politics of an inept company.
