May 27-Jun. 23: Stupid *Expletive* Bird

The world premiere of Stupid *Expletive* Bird opens today at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in D.C. Inspired by Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, this modern adaptation by Aaron Posner follows an aspiring young director named Conrad who struggles against the legacy left by his famous actress mother and her generation. But when Conrad's young muse falls for his mother's lover, things get a little complicated, and everyone soon learns just how disappointing love, art and aging can be. The play runs through June 23, and if the title is any indication, you should probably hire a babysitter.
