Stage Two and Theatre of Love presents David Mamet's classic play "Sexual Perversity in Chicago" directed by Oliver Page. Performed originally in 1974, this Obie award winning work introduced the theatre world to Mamet, setting the tone for the starkly written, profane and fiercely honest work to come.
Bernie and Danny spend their every evening cruising the bars and clubs of Chicago’s singles scene for sordid stories and a quick lay. Bernie, brash and cynical is disgusted when his innocent friend Danny meets artist, Deborah and the two decide to settle down. Bernie, with help from Deborah’s equally skeptical roommate Joan, help turn this loving relationship into the epitome of a modern, urban romance.
As compelling and true today as it was in the mid seventies, Sexual Perversity in Chicago paints a wildly funny, briskly paced portrait of the sticky details of trying to make Romance work in the big bad city.
