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

Beane is invisible to his career-focused sister and her cynical husband. Beane’s life is a shrinking, darkening world…until Molly appears. When Beane discovers Molly, suddenly all of the love songs make sense. This off-beat romantic comedy is a world premiere work from hot young playwright John Kolvenbach, whose work has been produced from New York to London’s West End.
