Grand Concourse

Trailer for Steppenwolf's Grand Concourse. Contains some strong language

For a story about a nun’s soup kitchen in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, Grand Concourse is surprisingly devoid of sentimentality. Instead of the warm-fuzzies, audiences may leave with the cold-sarcasties—but if Sister Shelley is any indication, that shouldn’t prevent them from doing some good in the world. Running her charity alongside her co-worker Oscar with chilly efficiency despite a bad case of religious doubt, she’s reduced to setting a microwave timer in order to keep her prayer schedule on track. When youthful college dropout Emma shows up looking for a way to help, Shelley is eager to accept a new pair of hands in her kitchen. But Emma’s fragile ego and bad habit of fabrication doesn’t mix with Shelley’s slowly simmering midlife crisis, and the unstable mental state of some of the kitchen’s guests adds an extra layer of peril to their dynamic.

A familiar face on stage, on screen, and at the writer’s desk, two-time Obie winning playwright Heidi Schreck has also written for Nurse Jackie and the new Showtime series Billions. Her firm grasp on the subtleties of the human experience have earned her ample praise in this new work. On its 2014 New York City premiere, the New York Times commended Shreck’s “fluid, natural dialogue and …detailed characters that offer generous opportunities for actors,” while also noting the more lighthearted aspects of the performances, noting that Oscar brings a “funny performance, brimming with warmth and charm.”

Steppenwolf Theatre Company

Before they were launching a mission to the moon in Apollo 13, managing prison units in Oz, and rigging presidential elections in Scandal, Gary Sinise, Terry Kinney, and Jeff Perry were just three high-school kids in Highland Park. The trio had just brushed 20 years of age when, in 1974, they pooled their resources, emptied their pockets of loose change and buttons, and founded Steppenwolf Theatre in the basement of a Unitarian Church. It didn't just change their lives—it changed America's cultural history. Four decades, twelve Tonys, and one National Medal of Arts later, Steppenwolf is a leader in compelling stage drama, producing everything from revered classics to brand-new plays. The company has also launched the careers of some of the country's beloved dramatic actors as well: John Malkovich, Laurie Metcalf, and Alan Wilder all got their start at Steppenwolf.
