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.

Playing six African-American men at different stages of their lives as well as the people who love them, Beaty's newest performance piece unites this multitude of characters through an extraordinary event. Through the Night takes on universal themes and makes them personal, highlighting the tragedy, beauty and humor within all of us. It's about family; it's about addiction; it's about love. It's about time - can you make it through the night?
