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

Jeeter arrives in the Great Central Valley to the rusted trailer of his buddy Ben, a fellow Vietnam veteran. Their beer drinking is interrupted by the arrival of Jeeter’s new girlfriend, her crazy mother and a stranger from their shared past. This is a fierce, funny American story by Steven Dietz, one of the country’s most widely-produced playwrights.
