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.

Very interesting play dealing not so much about the factual scientific research that Marie and Pierre Curie explored but from the point of view of the passion they both had for their scientific research and how it become more a part of their lives than even they may have imagined.
Great performances from the ensemble cast.
However, like previous performances I have attended at the Geffen, members of the audience were very talkative throughout the performance. In the smaller space while following a dialogue heavy play, this was all the more annoying.
