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

This play is extremely dark, and I wouldn't recommend it if you can relate to the theme and/or get depressed easily. My partner, who saw the play with me and is very similar to the overworked protagonist, wished she'd never seen it. We were hoping the play would make light of his situation, or at least have some good advice to take away, but it was mostly just incredibly bleak.
That said, the play itself is well written and well performed. It's emotionally stirring and it gives you a taste of modern London. One of the actors had a tendency to stumble over his lines, but the other members of the 5-person cast were very good. I would recommend How to Disppear Completely with a caveat that you be prepared to feel compltely hopeless afterward.
