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

I'm normally not a fan of avant-garde productions and modern/contemporary interpretations of Shakespeare, but the Steppenwolf did an amazing job.
I highly recommend this production of the Tempest for those looking to stretch their imagination.
In Shakespeare’s final work, Prospero is exiled to an enchanted island and his desire for revenge drives him to conjure a mighty storm, trapping his enemies on the island. In Steppenwolf’s first Shakespeare production, ensemble member Tina Landau re-imagines this magical tale of art, freedom and the transformative power of forgiveness.
