In this comedy-turned-thriller that took off-Broadway by storm, a rowdy, hot-tempered Russian family living in Brooklyn is on a quest to achieve the American dream. But things turn a bit topsy-turvy when Uncle Boris arrives from the old country, embroiling them in his mysterious business venture and forcing them to decide just how far they're willing to go for success. With writing so slick as to seem like sleight-of-hand, Russian Transport morphs from a funny comedy and a heated family drama into a pulse-pounding thriller. Learn More

Steppenwolf Theatre Company continues its 31st season with Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, directed by ensemble member Rick Snyder, featuring ensemble members Tracy Letts and Amy Morton, and one of the company’s newest ensemble members, Ian Barford. Also featured is Guy Barile.
“Steppenwolf is fortunate to be able to experience this play in the hands of director Rick Snyder and actors, Tracy Letts, Amy Morton and Ian Barford,” states artistic director Martha Lavey. “All have worked frequently on the Steppenwolf stage; all have worked with one another for years. The deep information that they share, as colleagues and friends, will surely inform their work on Betrayal—a play of intimacy and time.”
Harold Pinter received the Nobel Prize in Literature in December 2005. A British theater artist, screenwriter and political activist, his additional plays include The Birthday Party, The Caretaker, The Homecoming and Old Times.
Ensemble member Rick Snyder last directed Last of the Boys in the Downstairs Theatre, featuring ensemble members Tracy Letts, Mariann Mayberry and Amy Morton. Other directing credits include _Orange Flower Water _and The Fall to Earth for Steppenwolf.
