Sexual Perversity in ChicagoThe Crescent Theatre Company

Sexual Perversity in Chicago

Set against the back drop of the 1970s, David Mamet’s Sexual Perversity in Chicago traces the development and demise of a relationship between Dan and Deb, a couple who have fireworks in the bedroom but can’t make it work outside. Dan and Deb are influenced by their interfering friends, Bernie and Joan, whose cynical perspectives on the dynamics of relationships expose much of the bitterness, misandry and misogyny of sexual politics - ultimately asking the question, do any of us really know what we want?

Cyrano de Bergerac

Edmond Rostand’s brilliant, classic French story of Cyrano de Bergerac, the 17th Century poet and duellist, is brought to life in a play written with outdoor performance in mind, but equally suited to performance in the close up atmosphere of the Ron Barber studio.

Come and join us!

Did you know that The Crescent Theatre is run by its members?  Apart from a few paid staff, we are volunteers who have day jobs, are students, retired from paid work, or “resting”!  The one thing we have in common is a passion for theatre.  If you enjoy coming to The Crescent to see drama, shows, musicals, comedy, etc, then why not get more involved?  Your commitment could be from as little as once a month helping front of house to three or four times a week rehearsing a play or helping with one or other of the myriad aspects of putting on a production such as lighting, sound, set design, set construction, props and publicity.

To find out more, visit the Membership page.

Are you free during the day?

The Crescent also needs volunteers to help during the day. More and more companies are using the theatre for conferences and meetings so, if you have time on your hands and would like to help, go to the Membership page to find out more!
