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

_This show contains strong language and possible male nudity.
Running time is 100 minutes, with no intermission.
_ Things are on the up-and-up for recovering alcoholic Jackie and girlfriend Veronica — until Jackie spots another man’s hat in their apartment and embarks on a sublimely incompetent quest for vengeance. Fast-paced and uproarious, Mother asks probing questions about the havoc addiction wreaks. Ensemble member Anna D. Shapiro, director of the acclaimed Broadway premiere, returns to direct the Steppenwolf production.
