PROFILES THEATRE HISTORY Profiles Theatre is a not-for-profit professional theatre company now celebrating its 20th Anniversary Season of producing plays in Chicago. Founded in 1988 by five Eastern Illinois University alumni, the company was originally called Profiles Performance Ensemble. Profiles was in residence at the Wright College Theatre Building until 1990, when Artistic Director Joe Jahraus directed Profiles’ first play at the theatre’s current home THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISSOCIA – 2009 (4147 N. Broadway) - a hit production of David Mamet’s SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO. The following year, Associate Artistic Director Darrell W. Cox joined the ensemble. Darrell has a BFA in Theatre from Sam Houston State University in Texas and first performed with Profiles in their long-running production of Sam Shepard’s TRUE WEST. Profiles shortly thereafter became the resident company at the Broadway address, formerly known as Red Bones Theatre, and took over all management responsibilities for the 50-seat theatre. The ensemble officially changed the name of the company and of the theatre space to Profiles Theatre in 1995. Today, Profiles still maintains a small, tightly knit ensemble whose other members include Eric Burgher (2003), Somer Benson (2008), Allison Torem (2009), Greg Yaeger (1994), Sal V. Armano (1993), and Wayne Karl (1990). Profiles Theatre’s primary goal is to bring new works to Chicago that illuminate the determination and GREAT FALLS – 2009 resiliency of the human spirit. They produce World, US and Midwest Premieres by promising new playwrights as well as established writers whose work has been seen around the globe. They take pride in carefully selecting scripts that combine integrity with risk, and are particularly drawn to playwrights with a unique narrative style and use of language. Profiles Theatre is committed to producing plays that tell a story in a captivating way, ones that will complement BLACKBIRD – 2004 the ensemble and speak to their audience.
