Hysteria at Hollywood Theatre
May 25, 2015
Profile Theatre is thrilled to be partnering with Hollywood Theatre to help you end your Memorial Day weekend with a bang – or a buzz – by bringing you Hysteria, starring Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jonathan Pryce.  A perfect film to help get you in the mood for Profile’s next main stage production, Hysteria is a fun and funny look at the creation of the first electrically powered vibrator, and the relief it provided not just to women suffering from hysteria, but to the exhausted men treating them.
