Just bring yourself
Steppenwolf Education celebrates the learner, maker and appreciator in each of us. We commit to breaking down barriers to ensure access and equity for all. We emphasize rigorous exploration, intentional mentorship and the cultivation of meaningful relationships in our work. We use theatre to promote compassion, encourage curiosity and inspire action as we work together towards a more empathetic tomorrow.
a home what howls (or the house what was ravine)
Saturday, February 24, 5 - 7pm
Following the 3pm performance
A coyote howling. A home in disarray. A young woman alone. In Matthew Paul Olmos’ world premiere, Soledad Vargas is in the city, fighting for her family’s right to live on their land. When hope starts to dwindle, how far will she go, and what will she be forced to leave behind? A modern myth drawn from the real life struggles of displaced communities around the globe, a home what howls is a lyrically-rendered quest of youth activism standing against forces of injustice.
