Description

Outrageously funny and relentlessly naughty, _Sexual Perversity in Chicago _was the spark that ignited David Mamet’s firecracker career. In this brash take on sex and love, twentysomethings look for companionship in a predatory world filled with grandstanding, game-playing, and manipulation.

Often considered the first “true” Mamet play, _Sexual Perversity in Chicago _established the Pulitzer Prize winner’s reputation for sharp dialogue and devastating humor. Expect to be amused, offended, or awed, but expect nothing less from the modern master: _Sexual Perversity in Chicago _gleefully lays waste to what people think relationships should be like—and shows us how they really are.
