Tracy Letts

From pulp-inspired crime, to horror, to his own family tragedies, the subject matter of Tracy Letts' plays has been as diverse as the talents of Letts himself. Whether he's penning scripts for the stage and screen or acting, Letts has garnered critical kudos and major awards, as well as mainstream success, beginning with his 1993 play "Killer Joe," and continuing through his work with Chicago's Steppenwolf Theater Company, film adaptations of his own plays, including "Bug" (2006) and "August: Osage County" (2013), as well as a Tony Award-winning performance in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
