A Steppenwolf commission, The Fundamentals explores America’s corporate culture through its main character, Millie, a resourceful young mother and housekeeper at a New York luxury hotel. When an opportunity in management gives her the chance to leave her blue-collar life behind, she is faced with how much, and who, she is willing to sacrifice. Cast members will perform excerpts from the play, and playwright Erika Sheffer and director and Steppenwolf ensemble member Yasen Peyankov will illuminate a behind-the-scenes look at the play’s production in a discussion moderated by Julian Sheppard.
Participants include: Alana Arenas* as Millie, Audrey Francis as Eliza, Caroline Neff* as Stellan, Armando Riesco as Lorenzo, Alan Wilder* as Abe, Yasen Peyankov*, director, Erika Sheffer and playwright, Julian Sheppard, moderator (*denotes Steppenwolf ensemble member.)
