From Massachusetts to Costa Rica, we follow a teenager fleeing the aftermath of a tragic accident back home. Her guilt and confusion over the incident follow her to her uncle's isolated retreat in the jungle, where she fills his silent home with the sound of teenage chatter. Having sought out the sanctuary of Costa Rica as a refuge from his own guilt, the reclusive uncle is able to connect with his niece in a way nobody else could. Together, they come to terms with their own pasts and lay the ground for moving forward. The Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of Slowgirl will surprise you, touch you and make you think.

- "We have met Pablo Picasso, protean artistic genius. We are familiar with Pablo Picasso, voracious devourer and discarder of women. Now please welcome Pablo Picasso, quipmeister par excellence. " --Charles Isherwood, <em>New York Times</em>
- "One of the pleasures of <em>A Picasso</em> is that, as always, Hatcher is a master of clever dialogue." --Jackie Demaline, <em>The Cincinnati Enquirer</em>

Starring Roma Downey and Peter Michael Goetz
Set in 1941, during the German occupation of Paris, Picasso is secreted to a dusty underground vault where he encounters a beautiful young Gestapo art critic-turned -interrogator. The sexy inquisitor's job is to get Picasso to authenticate three of his paintings amidst the vault full of artwork confiscated by the Nazis so that it can be publicly burned. It's Picasso under pressure. Who will win this cat-and-mouse game?
