""One of our most valuable playwrights."--Time Out New York"A hideously funny tabloid noir. Letts' balance of irony and empathy continues to impress."-LA WeeklyA definitively dysfunctional family gives in to its basest instincts and is forced to face hidden truths in this twisted modern-day fairy tale by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of August: Osage County. Performed in fifteen countries and twelve languages since its 1998 stage debut, Killer Joe is "a terrifically tasty potboiler. It has the enjoyable hairpin turns of the standard mystery thriller, but it's the skewed shifting relationships that keep you hooked" (The New York Times). Now a critically acclaimed film adapted by the playwright and starring Matthew McConaughey. Tracy Letts is the author of the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play August: Osage County (soon to be a feature film starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts). His other plays include Bug, Superior Donuts, and Man from Nebraska, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He is an ensemble member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago as playwright and actor."
Mary Page Marlowe by Tracy Letts( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""On a stage, there's seemingly nothing that Tracy Letts can't do."- The Daily Beast. Known for his complex portrayals of the human psyche, Tracy Letts' new play expands what at first appears to be an intimate snapshot of one woman's seemingly ordinary life into a grand and elaborate manifest, complete with different versions of the same woman at various stages of her life. In a series of elegant, nonlinear scenes spanning the years from 1946 all the way to 2015, the play hopscotches through Mary Page Marlowe's quiet existence as an accountant from Ohio--complicating the notion of what it means to lead a "simple life." Tracy Letts was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play for August: Osage County. Other plays include Pulitzer Prize-finalist Man from Nebraska; Killer Joe, which was adapted into a critically acclaimed film and received its Broadway premiere in 2014; and Bug, which has played in New York, Chicago and London and was adapted into a film. Letts garnered a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"--
