Contrary to popular belief, all the world is not a stage—sometimes people just say things to get attention. See an actual stage with this GrouponLive deal to Profiles Theatre in Lakeview. For $40, you get two general-admission tickets to your choice of this season’s final plays (up to an $80 value). Both tickets may be used for two people to attend one play or split for one person to attend both. Check the calendar for specific showtimes; both tickets must be used by Sunday, May 27. The plays include:

There are certain times and places that lend themselves to drama. One of those times: the night before a friend’s wedding. One of those places: a cabin in the woods. As the curtain closes on Profiles Theatre’s 23rd season, its ensemble of playwrights and actors treats audiences to both.

On the night before their friend’s wedding, three single ladies carouse in a hotel room with drinks, drugs, and gossip. In Bachelorette, Leslye Headland navigates the barbarous battleground of human relationships while crafting a violent, unforgiving exposé on envy. As Time Out Chicago adoringly acclaimed, the show is “ugly, mean-spirited, and unexpectedly powerful.”

Elsewhere, in a Midwestern cabin tucked in the woods, a brother and sister lie and quarrel as they unravel their public and socioeconomic façades. In the American premiere of In a Forest, Dark and Deep, playwright Neil LaBute demonstrates that nothing is as it seems as he toys with preconceptions and expectations. Last year, the drama opened in London’s West End, causing the Guardian to remark how LaBute “pulls the rug from under our feet so often that we end up feeling breathless.”

Neil LaBute’s newest play not only marks its stateside launch, but also the official inauguration of Profiles’ new space, The Main Stage. After two decades of drama on their Alley Stage, Profiles has expanded to an adjacent theater along Broadway, which already had a stage conditioned with fake blood and real tears.

Reviews

It makes for a very intimate experience that really lets you lose yourself in the play.

We saw 'Bacheloratte' on a Friday evening and peed in our pants from laughter. So nice to learn about local artists in the city
