Steppenwolf Theatre Company presents Where We're Born, by Lucy Thurber, directed by Brad Akin, featuring Audrey Francis, Shane Kenyon, Max Lesser, Tim Musachio and Caroline Neff.
Lily's home from college, back in the working-class community that raised her. Her old crowd lives in a rhythm of hard work, and hard partying, and Lily is somehow out of the loop since she left for school. Her beloved cousin Tony and his friends are wisecracking and familiar, but sometimes dangerous.
Lily must confront her attractions to both Tony and Tony's girlfriend Franky and choose between familiar life in a small town or the unknown future privileges of a college education. In this marvelous portrait of a contemporary, rural small town, Lily's choices are more difficult than they appear.
