Joyce grant to Steppenwolf

Tarell Alvin McCraney will adapt Book of Job

Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater has picked up a $50,000 Joyce Foundation grant to develop a new play by Tarell Alvin McCraney based on the Book of Job.

The Joyce Awards program hands out funds supporting artists of color in major Midwestern cities. Other orgs scoring the year’s five grants include St. Paul’s Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

McCraney (“Wig Out!”) will develop the new biblical adaptation for the Steppenwolf ensemble in collaboration with director Tina Landau (“Superior Donuts”), the Steppenwolf member helming the theater’s current staging of “Brother/Sister.”

The Joyce Foundation is based in Chicago and doles out coin throughout the Great Lakes area.
