John Judd (Wrecks)
Profiles Theatre celebrates its 25th Anniversary Season with the Midwest premiere of WRECKS by Resident Artist Neil LaBute, starring John Judd. At his wife’s funeral, Edward Carr (Judd) gives a 70-minute monologue about his passionate yet complicated marriage. LaBute is a master at meticulously weaving strangeness into the character, while Judd portrays him as a normal guy who is hiding a hideous secret. John and I discussed why our sympathy for Edward Carr runs so deep that we are still on his side after he violates our moral and societal expectations.
