WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Support Group for Men is a hilarious exploration of what happens when society's new normal doesn't seem so normal to everyone. Thursday night in Wrigleyville is "Guys' Night" for a group of longtime pals. Instead of letting off steam over baseball, they've formed a support group — with its "no ladies" policy strictly enforced — in which they can vent about dashed romances, stalled careers, and other middle-age maladies. But when an unexpected visitor crashes their party, the guys' traditional notions of masculinity are exploded. This topical, Chicago-flavored comedy gleefully dissects the ever-changing role of gender in today's culture — and proves that understanding is sometimes found in the least likely of places.
