We had a great lunch at My China at Westfield Mall and walked to the theater. We traveled form Napa by Ferry from Vallejo and used public transportation from Ferry Building to the Mall.

THE PLAY WAS VERY SHORT AND I FELT LIKE I DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING FROM IT. IT SIMPLY SHOWS HOW WE DATE AND HOW WE GET ALONG WITH THOSE OF THE OPPOSITE GENDER. THE PLAY/THE CHARACTERS DIDN'T EVOKE ANY FEELINGS. THE ACTRESS WHO PLAYED DEBRA WAS TOO...continued

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.
