Award-winning Chicago stage veteran Roslyn Alexander fills the fascinating shoes of fearless activist Emma Goldman in this new solo drama that explores the passions behind the controversial figure's political agitation and the price she was willing to pay for it. A charismatic speaker and organizer, Goldman threatened the turn-of-the-century status quo with her liberal views on social issues and women's rights, but became infamous as an anarchist who advocated free love and who was jailed several times for demonstrating contraceptives, inciting to riot and opposing the draft. Dennis Zacek directs for the ShPIeL Theatre. Learn More

Great Show! Thought provoking and a realistic portrayal of the gay lifestyle. Hilarious one liners and the cast was easy on the eyes, especially the pot smoking college boy and the movie star. The screen writer resembled Malcom Gets and was one of the best characters. The older character stood out and had a powerful effect. Over all Great Show!

What a great show. Thought provoking and hilarious one liners plus hot men, especially the college kid and the movie star. Yummy! Just the right amount of bare butts and frontal nudity. I thought about it all weekend. I plan to see it again.

F**king Men observes the sex lives of the modern urban gay American male. Conceived as a noir-riff on Arthur Schnitzler’s 19th-century play, La Ronde, the play examines ten men from all walks of life as they negotiate the before and after of lust, love, betrayal and the pursuit of sex and emotional connection.
Funny, poignant, sometimes dramatic, always provocative and sexy, the show has been a runaway success in Los Angeles and London. Bailiwick Chicago’s production has received incredibly positive reviews from all the Chicago press.
