Steep Theatre has announced the cast and production team for the sixth play in Ike Holter’s seven-part “Rightlynd Saga,” RED REX.

Directed by Jonathan Berry, the production will feature Aurora Adachi-Winter, Debo Balogun, Chris Chmelik, Nate Faust, Joel Reitsma, Amanda Powell, and Jessica Dean Turner. 

The production team includes Stage Manager Jon Ravenscroft, Set Designer Joe Schermoly, Lighting Designer Pete Dully, Sound Designer Sarah D. Espinoza, Costume Designer Stefani Azores-Gococo, Props Designer Emily Hartig, Dramaturg Kendra Miller, and Production Manager Ellen Willett.

A small theater company moves into an abandoned Chicago storefront. Led by their adventurously thirsty artistic director, they embark on an explosive new play with the hope of finally breaking it big. When the ensemble realizes their source material might not be as original as once assumed, they are thrust into an intense confrontation with residents of their new community, who not only want them out, but will take their story back by any means necessary.

RED REX runs January 24 – March 2, 2019. For more information visit
