The modern-day American dream comes under the microscope in Steppenwolf Theatre Company's world premiere of Mona Mansour's funny and insightful new play, The Way West. In a California town that's seen better days, a woman shares tales of death-defying pioneer crossings with her two squabbling adult daughters as she waits for her bankruptcy to come through. This hilarious and heartbreaking play about today's American family explores the mixed blessing of our great frontier spirit, which has fueled both self-delusion and survival. Fresh off her Tony nomination for Steppenwolf's Broadway production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Amy Morton directs. Learn More

“The Crucible was an act of desperation…when I began to think of writing about the hunt for Reds in America, I was motivated in some great part by the paralysis that had set it… Nobody but a fanatic, it seemed, could really say all that he believed.” -Arthur Miller
The Chicago Public Library has chosen The Crucible as the Fall 2007 selection for the One Book, One Chicago citywide book club.
