The Most Spectacularly Lamentable Trial of Miz Martha Washington

Steppenwolf Theatre Company
March 3, 2020 – March 12, 2020

The recently widowed “Mother of America” lies helpless in her Mount Vernon bed, ravaged by illness and attended to by the very enslaved people who will be free the moment she dies. The form-shifting fever dream takes us deep into the ugly, uncomfortable, and thorny ramifications of America’s original sin. Both fantastical and fraught with cruel reality, this Chicago premiere from a daring new voice pulls no punches as it puts our idols, and ourselves, on trial.
