"[a] well-acted drama...richly drawn performances" 
- Kris Vire, Timeout Chicago
[the] cast brings an earnestness and poignancy to this story that suggests that no one is entirely safe in a country of deep divisions."
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
"...capricious nature of the insect world provides an excellent metaphor for our society's savagery in Steep's compelling look at a family in crisis."
- Lisa Buscani, New City
"It's an outstanding production all around; thoughtful, immediate, and taut."
