Coming off successful runs in London and Off-Broadway, where it won the 2014 New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Conor McPherson's The Night Alive arrives at Steppenwolf to tell the compelling story of Tommy, a down-on-his-luck Irish bloke who does a good deed that will likely not go unpunished. A slovenly sort who's taken up residence in his uncle's Dublin house, Tommy and his best friend Doc keep busy plotting get-rich-quick schemes, until one night, Tommy rescues a young woman from a violent attack, who he then takes in and begins to care for. Francis Guinan and Tim Hopper are the featured ensemble members, and Irish playwright McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) is an Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee who's famed for his poetic dialogue and richly textured storytelling.
