Steppenwolf Theatre Company has added a production to this summer's programming: Greg Pierce's Slowgirl, to star ensemble member William Petersen with the fast-rising young actor Rae Gray.

Gray will play a New England teenager who, following a terrible accident, absconds to the Costa Rican retreat owned by her uncle, played by Petersen, to wait out the aftermath. Pierce's play premiered last summer at New York's Lincoln Center Theater as part of its LCT3 new-work initiative, where it received admiring reviews.

Steppenwolf ensemble member Randall Arney will helm the production in the Upstairs Theatre, running July 18–August 25. Tickets go on sale May 3.
