Pride Films And Plays' Announces Changes to F**KING MEN Schedule of Performances Pride Films and Plays' has announced two changes to the performance schedule of its production of Joe DiPietro's FUCKING MEN, playing now through August 26.

There will be no Sunday, July 22 performance (to allow time for striking the set of Circle Theatre's THE VIEW UPSTAIRS, which will close that afternoon).

Beginning Friday, July 27, Friday and Saturday performances of FUCKING MEN will have a 10:30 pm curtain through the remainder of the run.

Sunday performances from Sunday July 29 through Sunday, August 26 will remain at 8 pm.

In FUCKING MEN, Joe Di Pietro's present-day updating of Schnitzler's LA RONDE, ten men - a hustler, a soldier, two college students, a businessman and his husband, an adult film actor, a movie star, a talk show host and a playwright - all have physical and emotional desires to connect. Pride Films and Plays Executive Director David Zak, who will direct the production, announced the cast today. It will include Whitman Johnson of PFP's HIS GREATNESS (the Hustler), Luke Halpern (the Soldier), Kumar Rohit (Marco, the graduate student), Conor McGarry (the College Student), Matt Frye (Leo, the Teacher), Jay Espano (Leo's businessman husband Jack), Roy Samra (the Porn Star), Lars Ebsworth (Sammy, the Playwright), Alex Iacobucci (the Movie Star) and Nick Schrier (Donald, the Agent).

For this 10th Anniversary production of FUCKING MEN, DiPietro's scenes will be connected with sensual movement from choreographers Jake Ganzer, Daniel Hurst, James Mueller, and Katelyn Stoss.

FUCKING MEN will have previews on July 1 and 7; open to the press on Sunday, July 8; and run through August 25. Performances will be Fridays and Saturdays at 11 pm and Sundays at 8 pm.

FUCKING MEN will be the third of Pride Films and Plays's summer-long "PAC Pride Series" of five fully-staged productions. The series will begin with the Chicago premiere of the British play PINK ORCHIDS and an 85th anniversary production of the landmark gay drama THE GREEN BAY TREE, opening on June 8 and 13, respectively. Those two plays will be performed in repertory in the PAC's Buena Theater through July 7th and 8th.

The final two plays in the PAC Pride Series are the World Premiere of Kevin Brofsky's HURRICANE DAMAGE, opening on August 3, after previews on August 1 and 2; and the Chicago premiere of Tommy Murphy's HOLDING THE MAN, a hit gay-themed drama from Australia chronicling the 15-year relationship of a real-life gay couple, opening on August 6 following a preview on August 5. They will run in repertory in The Broadway and will close on Sunday, August 26 - just days before previews begin for the first show of Pride Films and Plays's previously announced five-show subscription season.

Tickets for all events are on sale now at or by phone at 866-411-4111 or 773-857-0222.
