Harper Regan

A Reading
By Simon Stephens, directed by Robin Witt

Celebrate Steep Theatre's 15th Anniversary with a reading of one of the company's most memorable plays: Simon Stephens' Harper Regan.

On a startlingly bright autumn night in 2008, Harper Regan walked away from her home and her husband and her daughter and she kept walking. From Uxbridge to Stockport to Manchester and back again, Harper Regan navigates the UK, exploring family, love and delusion; and how to live in a godless universe.

When: Monday, March 7, 2016 at 7:30pm
Where: Steppenwolf's Upstairs Theatre: 1650 N Halsted St.

Join the cast and company for a post-reading reception at Burger Bar (1578 N Clybourn Ave). Enjoy complimentary food and a cash bar.

General Admission: $25
Patron: $75 (includes a reserved seat and a drink ticket)

Four out of Four Stars!
"exquisitely directed, gorgeously acted and profoundly moving new show at the storefront Steep Theatre...this is one of those great, not-to-be-missed, only-in-Chicago productions."
- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
Four out of Four Stars!
"It's the kind of play tailor made for Steep's gifted ensemble...Thulin marvelously inhabits the awkward and reticent figure at the piece's center" 
- John Beer, Timeout Chicago
Highly Recommended!
Harper receives an "outstanding U.S. debut at Steep Theatre." "Under the searing, finely tuned direction of Robin Witt -- who has assembled a large and tremendously impressive cast -- the play feels at once deeply realistic and quasi-hallucinatory."
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
"if you're lucky, a flawless play comes along and recalibrates you...Harper Regan is such a play."
- Sarah Terez Rosenblun, centerstagechicago.com
"Steep Theatre's American premiere features finely wrought ensemble acting..."
- Albert Williams, Chicago Reader
"Thulin's bedraggled vulnerability keeps the audience rooting for Harper..."
- Lisa Buscani, New City
