Brenda Barrie, Francis Guinan, Tracy Letts, et al. Set for Steppenwolf's Middletown
In the play, Mary Swanson just moved to Middletown. About to have her first child, she is eager to enjoy the neighborly bonds a small town promises. But life in Middletown is complicated: neighbors are near strangers and moments of connection are fleeting. The play is a portrait of a town with two lives, one ordinary and visible, the other epic and mysterious.
The production team will include Antje Ellermann (scenic design), Janice Pytel (costume design), Matt Frey (lighting design) and Richard Woodbury (sound design).
