Comedy Characters: 2 males, 2 females Bare stage, movable props The Obie award-winning Sexual Perversity in Chicago "takes funny and painful digs at the fantasies and distances of the contemporary sexual game," according to The New York Times. Two male office workers, Danny and Bernie, are on the make in the swinging singles scene of the early 1970's. Danny meets Deborah in a library and soon they are lovers as well as roommates. The other couple, Bernie and Joan, seem to have the politics of sex down pat but are as confused as their more naive counterparts. After much comic drama, the two men end as they started, talking a good game in the local bar. Published with The Duck Variations. "Mamet has the most acute ear for dialogue of any American writer since J.D. Salinger."-The Village Voice "Marvelously observant...A glittering mosaic of tiny, deadly muzzle flashes from the war between men and women among the filing cabinets and single bars."-The New York Times
