Tracy Letts interview

In The New York Times, Patrick Healy talks to American playwright Tracy Letts about winning a Tony Award for August: Osage County, and his new play Superior Donuts.
Countless American playwrights have mined pain and pathos, but Mr. Letts, who also won a Pulitzer Prize this year for “August,” is today’s most explosive extractor. He has written just five plays in 18 years, yet those five contain enough damage for a lifetime oeuvre.
August Osage County will run at the National Theatre in London later this year.
