Profiles Theatre Artistic Directors Darrell W. Cox and Joe Jahraus announce their 25th Anniversary Season featuring a full slate of new and challenging works premiering at the Profiles Theatre Complex on North Broadway. The upcoming season features six productions including the Midwest premieres of Wrecks by Neil LaBute, the award-winning play Cock by Mike Bartlett, Annapurna by Sharr White, In God’s Hat by Rhett Rossi and Gidion’s Knot by Johnna Adams. Additionally, Profiles acclaimed production of Hellcab by Will Kern, one of Chicago theatre’s longest running hits, returns for the holiday season. These six productions alternate between Profiles’ two venues, The Main Stage at 4139 N. Broadway and The Alley Stage at 4147 N. Broadway. 

"It’s an incredible feeling for all of us at Profiles to celebrate 25 years of producing theatre in Chicago,” Joe Jahraus said. “The diversity of this season’s new selections provides an exciting cross-section of the type of work Profiles proudly explored for more than two decades.”

Darrell W. Cox added, “We’re deeply grateful to Resident Artist Neil LaBute as we continue our ongoing collaboration with his quintessential monologue play Wrecks. Profiles has premiered a number of British plays in our history--we are thrilled to be presenting the Midwest Premiere of Cock by Mike Bartlett, one of the most controversial and provocative new plays Off-Broadway last season.”

Jahraus went on to say, “In God’s Hat is a dark, visceral and often humorous new play by Rhett Rossi - the type of hard-edged theatre that put us on the map. We continue our ongoing pursuit to produce work from the most talented, unique female voices in the country with Johnna Adam’s devastating and emotionally charged new play Gidion’s Knot. We also plan to bring back our acclaimed production of Hellcab for another ride during the holiday season. This Chicago classic is so beloved by the theatre community, it could easily become our perennial holiday event.”

In this tense comedy about sexual identity, Cock explores one man's choices about which path of love to pursue. When John takes a break from his longtime boyfriend, the last thing he expects is to fall in love with a woman. Trapped between two lovers, John feels the physical and emotional tug as neither party wants to lose the battle for his heart. John must make a choice as he navigates his sexuality, selfhood, and the intersection of the two.

Cock received its World premiere at London’s Royal Court Theatre, selling out its entire run in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs before opening in November 2009. Directed by James Macdonald, it won the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre as well as a nomination for Best Play at the 2010 Evening Standard Theatre Awards. The American premiere, also produced by Royal Court and staged by Macdonald, opened off-Broadway in May 2012 and received a nomination for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play from the Outer Critics Circle Awards and Outstanding Play for the 2013 Lucille Lortel Awards. Mike Bartett won the Old Vic New Voices Award for Artefacts at the Bush Theatre while Contractions at Royal Court received a nomination for the TMA Best New Play Award.

Twenty years ago, Emma walked out on her husband, cowboy-poet Ulysses, in the middle of the night. Now, hearing he's in dire straits, she tracks him down in the wilds of Colorado to find him living in a grungy trailer, working on his magnum opus, hooked to an oxygen tank, and cooking in the buff. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, brings back the worst and best of their former bond.

Annapurna received its critically-acclaimed world premeire at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco, California in 2011 and was a finalist for the Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award. The premiere was followed by a 2013 production at The Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles starring Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman. The New Group opens the production Off-Broadway with Mullally and Offerman in April 2014 at the Acorn Theatre in New York.
