In downstate Illinois, four sex offenders share a group home where they must negotiate their place in a world that doesn't want them. A man shows up to confront his childhood abuser — but does he want closure or retribution? This provocative new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning ensemble member Bruce Norris pushes moral boundaries as it questions what happens when society deems anyone unworthy of forgiveness.
Downstate is a co-commission and coproduction with the National Theatre of Great Britain. Under the direction of Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon, Downstate will feature an American and British cast and creative team.
