"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 Weekly

A 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 Prizewinning 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 Awardwinning 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.
