By Lauren Yee, directed by Vanessa Stalling
Her mother warned her about the treacherous hook-handed man hiding in the back seat, but only after a tragic accident could Lexi see the real threat of the hookman. The bitingly funny, edge-of-your-seat scary Hookman is a lethally sharp slasher comedy about grief, adolescence, and the power of the stories we tell each other and ourselves.

In April, Steep will produce the Midwest premiere of Lauren Yee’s Hookman. Yee, a San Francisco native, has had work produced around the country, including Chicago's Victory Gardens and The Goodman. Her plays The Tiger Among Us and King of the Yees were both featured on the 2015 Kilroys list, which showcases un- or under-produced plays by female and trans playwrights. Hookman has previously had a production at Encore Theatre in San Francisco and a reading at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in New York.
