Letts won both the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Drama for his play, and is likely to gather more awards for the screenplay.August: Osage County is not the first play he’s adapted for the screen himself, having written the scripts William Friedkin directed of his plays Bug and Killer Joe. This year, Letts triumphed in his other profession, as actor, by winning the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play in Broadway’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and by hounding Claire Danes in his role as the investigating senator on Showtime’s Homeland.We are thrilled to have Tracy Letts participate in a discussion with the Alley Theater’s Greg Boyd following our November 7 screening of August.
