Profiles Theatre, the leading showcase of the work of Neil LaBute, presents the professional debut production of In the Company of Men, a stage adaptation of LaBute's first film. A critical hit at the Sundance Film Festival and a cultural touchstone, In the Company of Men launched LaBute's career as a director and a writer of savage, scandalous wit. Transferred to the stage, the movie's powerful hold only grows stronger. Two frustrated young executives decide to play a heartless trick: They will both woo a vulnerable young woman ... only to dump her simultaneously. However, neither the perpetrators of this scheme nor the victim -- a deaf typist -- are quite prepared for the cruelty of its consequences. Resident Artist and Steppenwolf ensemble member Rick Snyder directs the world premiere of this influential work, newly revised and adapted for Profiles Theatre. Learn More

Thought-provoking, effective, personal. Really cared about the characters. And how about those two guys doing the quick changes? They put a very professional finish on an already crisp, clear (yet sometimes uncomfortable - due to the subject matter/situations) production. Bottom line: the script itself is high-caliber. Well worth a look.
