Theatre Seven of Chicago is set to present the professional world premiere of Carter Lewis' American Storm, November 16-December 16 at the Greenhouse Theater Center Upstairs Studio. Artistic director Brian Golden will direct.
In American Storm, it's the summer of 1962 and a small Ohio town discovers a prize thoroughbred in the stables of the local track. With big business promising to take Weldon Downs corporate, the track workers learn soon enough that not even hope comes for free.

The design team will include Joe Schermoly (set design), Brenda Winstead (costume design), Justin Wardell (lighting design), Jeff Kelley (sound design), and Kerith Parashak (prop design).
