  • "Laugh-out-loud funny." – Chicago Tribune

The world's changing, bro. 

Every Thursday in Wrigleyville is “Guys’ Night” for a group of pals who gather to vent about middle-aged maladies—with a “No Ladies” policy strictly enforced. When an unexpected visitor crashes the party, their notions of what it means to be a man in today’s America are suddenly upended. Don’t miss this of-the-moment comedy by Ellen Fairey, whose work has been hailed "a must-see for anyone who follows important new plays" (Chicago Tribune).

Leading the Support Group: A Conversation with Playwright Ellen Fairey

Ten years after her play Graceland earned enormous popular and critical acclaim, playwright Ellen Fairey-"one of my favorite made-in-Chicago writers," raved the Chicago Tribune's Chris Jones-returns to town with Support Group for Men, following a decade writing and producing for television, including Nurse Jackie, Masters of Sex and The Sinner.

Lonely American Men

Boys don't cry. Man up. Just take it. Dominate. Bury it. Be a man. Be a man. Be a man. If your gender identity lands somewhere in the spectrum of male, man or masculine, chances are you've heard some variety of those phrases growing up. I know I did.
