The Way West Steps to Chicago

So: The Way West will be in Steppenwolf’s (as in Steppenwolf-Steppenwolf! like, what the sh*t?) next season. Directed by Amy Morton.

So. I mean.

I mean.

So I’m very excited, and pretty much that’s all I can say about it right now. Below is a link on the story —

The Way West

by Mona Mansour

Directed by ensemble member Amy MortonApril 3 — June 8, 2014

A wryly funny playwith musicabout the contemporary quirks of our American spirit. In a modern-day California town that’s seen better days, Mom shares death-defying tales of pioneer crossings with her two squabbling adult daughters as she waits for her bankruptcy to come through. Peppered with original prairie songs, this hilarious and heartbreaking play about today’s American family explores the mixed blessing of our great frontier spirit, which has fueled both self-delusion and survival.
