Partner swapping goes awry in The Qualms, the new comedy by Pulitzer-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park). In this darkly funny world premiere from Steppenwolf Theatre Company and Tony-winning director Pam MacKinnon, a group of friends gathers at a beachside apartment complex for their regular evening of food, drink, drugs and sex. But when a new couple joins the party, the freewheeling night devolves into a territorial battle over mating privileges. Often compared to Edward Albee for his witty examinations of the American psyche, Norris is one of two playwrights (the other being David Mamet) to win a Pulitzer, Tony and Olivier Award for a single play. In The Qualms, he delves into the eternal struggle for power and status. Learn More

A Latino-Jewish family celebrates the holidays in this warm-hearted play by Melinda Lopez about how the world shapes our families and how families shape our lives. Sonia, a Cuban immigrant raising two children with her Jewish husband in Minneapolis, is preparing for her Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations. When war intrudes on her son’s life, Sonia must reconcile her childhood memories of Operation Pedro Pan, a political maneuver that separated her and thousands of other Cuban children from their parents.
Directed by associate artist Jessica Thebus, Sonia Flew features ensemble member Alan Wilder with Sandra Delgado, Sandra Marquez, Andrew Perez, Vilma Silva and Jeff Still.
