Steppenwolf Theatre Company has announced complete casting for the Chicago premiere of Conor McPherson's The Night Alive. Henry Wishcamper directs the production, which will run from September 18-November 16, with opening night set for September 28.

In The Night Alive, Tommy is crashing in his uncle's ramshackle house in Dublin while plotting a parade of get-rich-quick schemes with his buddy Doc. Then one day he defends a destitute woman against a violent attack and a fragile glimmer of hope emerges. The world premiere of The Night Alive was produced at London's Donmar Warehouse in 2013.

The cast will feature ensemble members Francis Guinan and Tim Hopper with Helen Sadler, Dan Waller, and M. Emmet Walsh.

The production team for The Night Alive includes Todd Rosenthal (scenic design), Rachel Healy (costume design), Richard Woodbury (sound design and original music), and Keith Parham (lighting design).
