ABOUT THIS SHOW

In a seedy Oklahoma motel room, a lonely waitress begins an unexpected love affair with a young drifter. And then they see the first bugs… Tracy Letts’s mind-bending cult classic—a luridly funny tale of love, paranoia, and government conspiracy—roars back to Chicago for its Steppenwolf debut.
