The Duck Variations and Sexual Perversity in Chicago
June 11 - June 28, 2009
A double bill from David Mamet, dealing with male relationships early and late in life, parables on sex and aging. The Duck Variations presents George and Emil, two elderly friends, sitting on a lakeshore bench watching ducks and telling tales. Their conversation skirts around the issues of friendship and the fear of being alone. Their younger counterparts in Sexual Perversity make feeble attempts at romantic relationships that threaten their own friendship.
