Steppenwolf Theatre Company presents When the Messenger Is Hot, by Laura Eason, adapted from the book by Elizabeth Crane. Jessica Thebus directs. Three years after Josie's mother died, no one expects her to telephone from a bus station in North Dakota. This smart and slyly comic study of love and letting go is an insightful look at the disparity between what you expect and what is delivered. Part of 59E59 Theaters GoChicago! Festival.
