Synopsis

This is a critical moment in American life, in which issues of American identity and responsibility are being vigorously discussed and debated. There is a sense that change is in the air. Steppenwolf's 2007-2008 season is our contribution to the conversation: five American stories that explore and celebrate our national experience. Join us at Steppenwolf as we collectively examine how we live now.
