A Midwest Premiere
By Dennis Lehane, directed by Kevin Gladish

"What's worse than murder?"
A father and son searching for a missing girl and a stolen diamond, a psychiatrist and a patient having an illicit affair, and two lovers plotting a murder. What we're willing to do for love, for money, and finally, for redemption.

In the press

The Chicago Tribune, "On The Fringe, Best of 2007"
1. The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui - Kerry Reid
3. Coronado - Nina Metz
"this is a thriller...[Lehane's] heightened realities work better on stage than film. The Steep production -- in its wonderfully crammed storefront manner --...burrows deep into the psyche."
- Nina Metz, The Chicago Tribune
"So tightly-constructed is Lehane's intricate narrative and so riveting his preternaturally-eloquent personnel that we never lose our way...director Kevin Gladish and his stalwart cast...generate ensemble performance at its most exemplary."
- Mary Shen Barnidge, Windy City Times
