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

A really interesting, thought-provoking, sharply written play by a writer I'd never heard of but will definitely follow in the future. The staging was inventive and the casting was excellent. I'm only sorry I saw the last performance in the run--I would like to have recommended it for more folks to see. I definitely will be curious to see what this theater company offers next!

In the world premiere of Caridad Svich’s Magnificent Waste, Factory 449 explores America’s appetite for excess and presents an unsettling portrait of its own undoing; a glittering but brutal exploration of modern society’s superficiality and the objectification of the human body.
