Steep Theatre brings out the everyday truth in the stories we tell through ensemble work.
About Steep Theatre
Described by Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune as "a Chicago company increasingly known for its uncompromising acting," Steep Theatre creates powerful productions of plays by today's most exciting writers and features the work of Chicago's hottest theatre artists in a beautiful, intimate space. Currently in its 15th season, Steep Theatre is known as a home for hard-hitting, finely tuned ensemble work, and has been named in TimeOut Chicago's Top Ten Shows of the Year list five times, the Tribune's Top Ten List twice, the Sun-Times' best of the year list twice, and WBEZ's Top Ten Shows of the Decade. Steep Theatre Company was founded in 2000 by three actors with little more than a shoestring budget and a desire to work in an open, ensemble atmosphere. Over the years, the company has become a dedicated, close-knit group of thirty-one actors, directors, designers, and writers driven by a shared commitment to the organization's mission: Steep believes theatre should stoke conversations about the issues and conditions that are part of all of our lives; conversations that take place between artists and audiences in the theatre, in the lobby, and long after everyone has gone home. Steep's goal is more than just sparking these conversations – the company's goal is to add more voices and perspectives to these conversations. Steep strives to reach the everyday person who may have abandoned theatre as a relevant art form by telling stories that touch their lives in real and palpable ways and by creating an environment that is welcoming to everyone. By bringing these voices back to the theatre, Steep hopes to reignite conversations and ensure that theatre is a viable, vital, and productive art form.
