Steep Theatre, the respected storefront operation on Chicago's North Side with a niche consisting of new work from the United Kingdom, said Tuesday that it will stage the American premiere of a new work, "Motortown," by the highly regarded British playwright Simon Stephens.
The piece, about a returning solider and penned by the Chicago-loving author of "Harper Regan" and "Pornography," will debut in October, under the direction of Robin Witt.
In January, Steep will stage the Midwest premiere of "Strangers, Babies," penned by the young Scottish writer Linda McLean and directed by Brad Aikin. In April, Jonathan Berry will direct "If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet" by the English writer Nick Payne.
Next summer's attraction at Steep still is to be announced.
