The Daily Mail has also predicted a London transfer for Tracy Letts' new drama August: Osage County. The production, care of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theater Company, has had to postpone its New York opening at the Imperial Theatre as the stagehands’ strike continues on Broadway, but advance word following previews and its earlier award-winning run in Chicago is strong. Letts’ play exposes the dark side of the middle American family. When the Westons unexpectedly reunite after dad disappears, their Oklahoman homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets, all overseen by Violet, the pill-popping, scathingly acidic matriarch. Letts’ other credits include Bug and Killer Joe, both of which were seen at London’s Bush Theatre in the 1990s.
