Downstate Tickets

In downstate Illinois, four men convicted of sex crimes against minors share a group home where they live out their lives in the shadow of the offences they committed. A man shows up to confront his childhood abuser — but does he want closure or retribution?

This provocative new play zeroes in on the limits of our compassion and what happens when society deems anyone beyond forgiveness.

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Bruce Norris’ (Clybourne ParkThe Low Road) new play, directed by Pam MacKinnon, comes to the National Theatre direct from its premiere at Steppenwolf, Chicago.
