CHICAGO, IL – Steppenwolf Theatre Company announced the complete cast for the Chicago premiere of Domesticated, a provocative dark comedy written and directed by ensemble member and Pulitzer Prize-winner Bruce Norris. The cast features ensemble member Tom Irwin and venerable Chicago actress Mary Beth Fisher as a political couple in the midst of a sex scandal. Irwin has been an ensemble member since 1979, having performed in more than 50 Steppenwolf productions including The Grapes of Wrath and The Seafarer. Fisher, a frequent performer at Goodman Theatre, most recently in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, last performed at Steppenwolf in Dead Man’s Cell Phone in 2008. Completing the Domesticated cast are Emily Chang, Esteban Andres Cruz, Meighan Gerachis, Rae Gray, Beth Lacke, Millie Langford, Melanie Neilan, Meg Thalken and Karen Woditsch. Domesticated runs December 3, 2015 – February 7, 2016 in the Downstairs Theatre. Tickets to Domesticated ($20 – $89) go on sale Friday, October 2, 2015 through Audience Services (1650 N. Halsted) at 312-335-1650 and steppenwolf.org.
Politician Bill Pulver faces the cameras to stumble his way through a carefully crafted apology as his wife Judy stands stoically behind him…but what is she REALLY thinking? We are about to find out in Bruce Norris’s wickedly funny, unpredictable play about a marriage burst apart by a sex scandal. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Qualms and Clybourne Park, Domesticated is a scathing, wildly entertaining play that investigates gender politics, modern marriage and the sexual mysteries of the animal kingdom.
Also announced—The complete cast for The Flick
The four-member cast of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Annie Baker includes Will Allan as Skylar, Danny McCarthy as Sam, Caroline Neff as Rose and Travis Turner as Avery. Neff performed in last season’s critically acclaimed premiere Airline Highway by Lisa D’Amour at Steppenwolf and on Broadway. Allan performed in the sold-out run of Steppenwolf for Young Adults’ production of George Orwell’s Animal Farm last season. McCarthy, who is a longtime Red Orchid Theatre company member, recently performed in Grace on Broadway. Turner was last seen in the Goodman’s Upstairs Concierge and makes his Steppenwolf debut. The Flick runs February 4, 2015 – May 8, 2016 in the Upstairs Theatre.
