Jeff Award-winning director Jonathan Berry returns to Steep Theatre this spring to helm their Midwest Premiere of Nick Payne's If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet. Over the past few seasons, Steep and Berry have developed an impressive track record of introducing the UK's hottest writers to Chicago. They most recently collaborated on the U.S. Premiere of John Donnelly's The Knowledge, which enjoyed an extended, sold-out run in 2013 and was named one of the Top Ten Shows of the year by Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune. Steep's premiere of If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet is yet another opportunity for Chicago audiences to become acquainted with one of Britain's exciting writing talents. The production will mark playwright Nick Payne's Chicago debut.
 
Steep and Berry's string of hit imports extends back to 2011, when they produced one of the most talked about shows of the year, the Midwest Premiere of Festen by David Eldridge. Festen was named one of the top shows of 2011 by Timeout Chicago, the Chicago Sun-Times, theatreinchicago.com, and Chicago Theatre Beat, and enjoyed an extended, 10-week sold-out run at the north side theater. Berry and Steep delivered again in 2012 with the critically acclaimed U.S. Premiere of Deirdre Kinahan's Moment, which transferred to Theater Wit after a sold-out, extended run at Steep and was nominated for Jeff Awards for Best Director and Best Ensemble.
 
If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet premiered in 2009 at the Bush Theatre, under the direction of then Artistic Director Josie Rourke. Payne's insightful comedy looks at a family who must find the fine line between saving the world and saving themselves. Nick Payne won the 2009 George Devine Award for new writing in theater for this play. In 2010, Mr. Payne made his Royal Court Theatre debut with his comedy Wanderlust and, in January 2012, his play Constellations opened at the Royal Court Upstairs and was transferred to the West End later that year. It received universally glowing reviews and won the Evening Standard Best Play Award and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Play. Mr. Payne is currently under commission at Paines Plough, the Royal Court, and Manhattan Theatre Club/Alfred P Sloan Foundation.
