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

Loved the cast except for the actor who played Natasha who took away from the authenticity of the Chechov characters, loved the decor .I don't think the choice of the actor playing Natasha was appropriate for depicting a Russian aristocrat of the time.She was rather loud not sofisticated.She brought a flavor of her culture rather then the Russian low class female who thru manipulation and malice well hidden, rised up to become burgeoise and the person who seemed to have accomplished everything.
The message of the play was loud and clear.
Director Anna D. Shapiro notes, “Three Sisters is a play about a certain kind of paralysis. It is about all of the things we construct in the future that keep us immobilized in the day. There are unhappy marriages, unrequited love, duels and really nasty in-laws. And everybody’s trying to get somewhere else. And it’s funny. Funny in the way that serious human folly can be funny.”
The parking structure for the theater is rather modest. Please allow ample time for parking.
