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

Finally, a celebration of the world’s newest and quite possibly best religious movement, Pastafarianism! Landless Theatre presents the DC Premiere of The Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant, a ridiculous, fast-paced comedy written by Jeremy Gable of California’s Hunger Artist Theatre.
Founded in 2005 by physics graduate Bobby Henderson to protest the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to biological evolution, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster venerates a supernatural Creator that resembles spaghetti and meatballs.
In his Noodly Wisdom, the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world out of trees, a mountain and a midget. To prove the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Henderson has graphed a correlation between the decline of pirates and the rise of global warming.
The play picks up after the Kansas State Board of Education decision to add Intelligent Design to its curriculum. School teacher Ms. Fism can’t keep up with the number of religions that she has to teach. For Week 37: Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, the audience is treated to an Old School holiday pageant with pirates, strippers and a beer volcano (!) From the beginning of the world (including the aforementioned trees, mountains and a midget) to present-day (with contemporary Internet prophet Bobby Henderson), it’s a celebration of free speech, religious freedom, diversity, equality, and of course, pasta.
