Stupid F##king Bird

Premiering in Spring 2021

In this hilarious, irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, an aspiring director rebels against the art of his mother’s generation while a young actor vies with an aging celebrity for the attention of an acclaimed writer. Utilizing multiple performative lenses, the play examines questions of art, love, loss, and the eternal (and elusive) pursuit of happiness.

The Trojan Women

Premiering May 10, 2021

When one empire falls and another rises, who is caught in between? And how do the decisions made a century ago continue to reverberate through today’s global political dynamics? This geopolitical reframing of Euripides' timeless tragedy parallels the aftermath of the Trojan War­­­­­­—and its devastating effects on women—with the rise of the U.S. as an empire in the 20th century.
