New from TCG Books:
by Tracy Letts
NEW YORK, NY – Theatre Communications Group (TCG) is pleased to announce the publication of Linda Vista by Tracy Letts. The play received its world premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago in the spring of 2017. Linda Vista opened on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theater in the fall of 2019, produced by Second Stage in association with Center Theatre Group.
“Letts is a master of pitch-dark comedies that measure the grisliest depths of human behavior…Linda Vista is very funny, equally unsettling…An inspired, ruthless take on the classic midlife-crisis comedy.” —Ben Brantley, New York Times
Fifty-year-old Wheeler is moving into his own apartment after a nasty divorce. With a blend of humor and humanity, Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Tracy Letts demonstrates the ultimate midlife crisis: the bewildering search for self-discovery once you’ve already grown up.
“Tracy Letts is a profusely gifted playwright. In Linda Vista the writing is so zingy and the playwright’s voice so sharp…Some of his most compassionate writing.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
Tracy Letts is a playwright, actor, and resident company member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for August: Osage County.
