Jan 28 at 7:30 pm - Steppenwolf and the National Theatre: Downstate by Bruce Norris

from 43.00

Following the world premiere at Steppenwolf in Chicago and prior to the London premiere at the National Theatre of Great Britain, Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright and Steppenwolf ensemble member Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park) discusses his provocative new play Downstate. Set in downstate Illinois, in a group home shared by four sex offenders where they negotiate their place in a world that doesn’t want them, Downstate pushes moral boundaries as it questions what happens when society deems anyone unworthy of forgiveness. For the first time in New York, Steppenwolf ensemble members, including Glenn Davis, K. Todd Freeman, Francis Guinan, and Tim Hopper, will perform highlights from the play.

“Intellectually rigorous. . . . Blisteringly acted. . . . Must-see. . . . One of the more incendiary and thus important productions in the illustrious history of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.” —Chicago Tribune
