The Steppenwolf Theater presents:

Steppenwolf for Young Adults (SYA) is pleased to announce its 2017/18 season: The Crucible, the Tony Award-winning American classic by Arthur Miller directed by Steppenwolf Artistic Producer Jonathan Berry, and the world premiere of The Burn by Chicago playwright Philip Dawkins directed by Devon de Mayo. SYA’s 2017/18 Season explores the question, When you Say it Enough, Does a Lie Become the Truth? 

“Written in response to the spread of McCarthyism, Arthur Miller’s classic work The Crucible explores a paranoid witch hunt and its very real consequences; in conversation with this epic drama, we are proud to present an SYA commission, the world premiere of Philip Dawkins’s The Burn, a modern telling of the way social media blurs the lines of truth and fiction and paves the way for new kinds of witch hunts in 2018," shares SYA Artistic Director Hallie Gordon.
