SynopsisSteppenwolf ensemble director Tina Landau, creator of 1997's acclaimed production, Space, directs this World Premiere production commissioned by Steppenwolf. Out of the chaos of high speed capitalism and crashing economies emerges a young, single woman caring for an abandoned baby. Based on an ancient Chinese fable, Charles L. Mee's The Berlin Circle is set in turbulent 1989 East Germany after the fall of Communism. Part uproarious spectacle, part touching fairy tale, the play captures the heartbeat of a world up for grabs. Charles L. Mee returns to Steppenwolf after his critically acclaimed Time to Burn played in the 1996-97 season.
