The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

The Department of Theater’s response is a festival of devised theater, organized under the artistic direction of dramaturgy MFA student Megan McClain. She will guide several groups of artists, both students and professionals, as they create a handful of new pieces that offer different perspectives on the theme and the questions it raises about how we relate to the physical world, what our responsibility is to repair what we harm, and our place in the community and this ecosystem.
