David Mamet’s saucy one-act play set in Wellington’s stylist bar.
Sexual Perversity in Chicago is a wicked comedy that examines the lives of two men and two women thrust into the harsh and lubricious world of dating in 1970s Chicago.

These four twentysomethings – Bernie (Allan Henry), Danny (Martyn Wood), Joan (Laurel Devenie) and Deborah (Amy Waller) – trawl through the city’s nightlife searching for a connection in a world obsessed with image and identity, hardness, artistic liberation, machismo and women’s rights. The results are at once uproarious and poignantly telling.

America’s most successful contemporary playwright, David Mamet’s works are known for their clever, terse, sometimes vulgar dialogue, arcane stylized phrasing, and for his exploration of masculinity. He is the author of Oleanna, Speed the Plow and Glengarry Glenn Ross which won him the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He has been nominated for three Oscars for his screenplays for The Verdict, The Untouchables and Wag The Dog.
This production of Sexual Perversity In Chicago has been tailor-made to integrate seamlessly with the architecture of the site specific location, the San Francisco Bath House, making it a unique and entertaining theatre experience.
Sexual Perversity in Chicago is for anyone who’s been in a relationship, is surfing the dating pool or has had suffered the joys of a one night stand – it perfectly captures the dilemma, confusion and fun of sexual liberation.
