Summary
"A tremendous achievement in American playwriting: a tragicomic populist portrait of a tough land and a tougher people."--"Time Out New York""Tracy Letts' "August: Osage County" is what O'Neill would be writing in 2007. Letts has recaptured the nobility of American drama's mid-century heyday while still creating something entirely original."--"New York" magazine"I don't care if "August: Osage County" is three and a half hours long. I wanted more."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer""This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the table with the great American family plays."--"Time"One of the most bracing and critically acclaimed plays in recent Broadway history, "August: Osage County" is a portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest--and absolute worst. In December 2013, the play became a motion picture from The Weinstein Company, starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Sam Shepard, Juliette Lewis, and Ewan McGregor. Tracy Letts was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play for "August: Osage County" which premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 2007 before playing Broadway, London's National Theatre, and a forty-week US tour. Other plays include Pulitzer Prize finalist "Man from Nebraska"; "Killer Joe," which was adapted into a critically acclaimed film and will receive its Broadway premiere in 2014; and "Bug," which has played in New York, Chicago, and London and was adapted into a film
