A young girl's suicide in an English industrial city brings a detective to the doorway of a British family, allegedly on a routine inquiry in connection with the death. But plot twists and surprises will keep you guessing during this haunting thriller about the respectable Birling family, whose secrets and sins are exposed when the mysterious Inspector Goole interrupts their lives. This popular drawing-room mystery by J.B. Priestley is a fascinating look into the world of a wealthy person as he or she is faced with guilt or blame for a moral wrong. A Broadway revival of An Inspector Calls won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Revival. Learn More

<p>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. </p>
