Sexual Perversity in Chicago uses mature and graphic language in revealing the heartache and humor of American sexual behavior. According to Director Roger Held, “The Obie awarding winning Sexual Perversity in Chicago by David Mamet explores the nature of sexual relationships: Their awkward, unreasonable natures, and how humans stubbornly cling to them in spite of heartache. First produced in 1974, the play continues to speak to generations of young adults in the unyielding clutches of sexual inelegance.” Performance dates are Thursday – Saturday, February 16 – 18 and 23 – 35, 7:30 PM each night, in the McArdle Theatre.
