Partner swapping goes awry in The Qualms, the new comedy by Pulitzer-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park). In this darkly funny world premiere from Steppenwolf Theatre Company and Tony-winning director Pam MacKinnon, a group of friends gathers at a beachside apartment complex for their regular evening of food, drink, drugs and sex. But when a new couple joins the party, the freewheeling night devolves into a territorial battle over mating privileges. Often compared to Edward Albee for his witty examinations of the American psyche, Norris is one of two playwrights (the other being David Mamet) to win a Pulitzer, Tony and Olivier Award for a single play. In The Qualms, he delves into the eternal struggle for power and status. Learn More

Read an "interview ":http://www.steppenwolf.org/watchlisten/backstage/detail.aspx?id=231with the playwright and director.
Bee is a young woman who believes she has the uncanny ability to see the future, and maybe even alter it. With the click of a television remote, we loop through time in this dark, funny world premiere about a woman bent on reinventing her own destiny—and possibly the world’s.
Bruce Norris returns to Steppenwolf with a sharp, new play following his critically acclaimed off-Broadway hit Clybourne Park. He joins forces once again with Tony Award-winning ensemble member and director Anna D. Shapiro – the team that brought Steppenwolf audiences powerful hits including The Unmentionable, The Pain and the Itch, __Purple Heart and The Infidel__.
Shapiro won a 2008 Tony Award for her direction of Steppenwolf’s critically-acclaimed production of August: Osage County. Other Steppenwolf directing credits include Up as well as The Crucible, Three Days of Rain, Drawer Boy, I Never Sang for My Father and Man from Nebraska.
