Sexual Perversity in Chicago/Bobby Gould In Hell 

When: Sat., June 20, 8 p.m. 2009
www.organictheater.org
Mamet's wickedly funny comedy of manners comes home to the Organic, where it had its world premiere in 1974. Sexual Perversity follows a quartet of twenty-somethings as they trawl through the city's nightlife searching for a connection in a world obsessed with image and identity. Finding poetry in everyday speech, Mamet explores the war between men and women with wicked humor and gleeful vulgarity in a play the New York Times calls "a vicious satire of a world run amok with permissiveness." On this outrageous double-bill, Mamet's rarely seen Bobby Gould in Hell follows the conniving movie-mogul from Speed the Plow as he (quite literally) confronts his demons. Plucked out of bed and, still in his pajamas, plunked down in the Waiting Room of the Hereafter, Bobby takes forced march through his morally bankrupt past that creates a hilariously odd bond between Bobby and his fishing-loving Interrogator.
