Downstate at the National Theatre
Co-produced by New York collective Steppenwolf Theatre Company, Downstate asks hard questions and, as with so many great plays exploring the complexities of the modern world, offers no clear answers or resolutions.
In downstate Illinois, four men live together in sheltered accommodation. All four of the men are convicted sex criminals, and all four live with their crimes. Some seek to be reformed, some continue to deny any wrongdoing. But when one of their victims arrives, the legacy of abuse and the process of forgiveness are pulled into stark and uncompromising view.
Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Norris, Downstate is essential, urgent and compelling theatre. Be sure to see it before it closes at the end of April.
