    "Go see it. Creepy, fascinating, scary... The language rides a line between Ionesco's idiotic iterations of bourgeois chatter and Edward Albee's coded, menacing manner."
    — David Cote, Histriomastix
    Lost in a labyrinth of Midwestern McMansions, teenager Kathleen Clarkson senses that something is very wrong with her world but nothing prepares her for the arrival of Hank Mountain. This friendly neighbor and his elusive partner-in-crime, Vera, stop over to bring brownie bars and chat about the property taxes. What her parents don't realize is that they've also come as harbingers of annihilation. When an all-knowing exchange student pops in from afar to join these two neighbors from "just down the way," a fairy tale of make-believe dissolves into a nightmare--both hilarious and terrifying-- that reveals the instability at the core of everything Kathleen knows. HAVE YOU SEEN STEVE STEVEN is a disconcerting comic drama that teases our sense of reality and safety and questions the places that we call home.
