Description

By Steven Dietz

Directed by ensemble member Rick Snyder

Featuring ensemble members Tracy Letts, Mariann Mayberry and Amy Morton with John Judd and Christopher McLinden

Jeeter arrives in the Great Central Valley to the rusted trailer of his buddy Ben, a fellow Vietnam veteran. Their beer drinking is interrupted by the arrival of Jeeter’s new girlfriend, her crazy mother and a stranger from their shared past. This is a fierce, funny American story by Steven Dietz, one of the country’s most widely-produced playwrights.

Stay after the performance for a post show discussion with Steppenwolf artists.
