The Way West

With a combination of denial, rationalization, and outright daydreaming, a family of three women cope with a looming crisis in Mona Mansour’s satirical comedy The Way West, at the intimate 80-seat Village Theatre in East Davenport. Mom is in the midst of bankruptcy proceedings that will likely result in her losing her house, and her adult children Meesh and Manda have come to help her navigate the labyrinth of cardboard boxes and paperwork. But Mom refuses to believe it. Instead, she’s lost in the world of the pioneers, telling tales of can-do spirit and indomitable tenacity, and is certain that her pioneer heart can conquer something as petty as a repossession. Her daughters—and the audience—sink into this delusion as well, as the whole cast breaks out guitars to sing folksy original songs about the first Californian settlers. When Steppenwolf premiered this allegorical comedy-drama in 2014, TimeOut’s Kris Vire wrote that it “imbues [the] myths and hymns of American exceptionalism with an extraordinary amount of heart.”
