Actor-turned-Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts made his name writing outlaws, outcasts and oddballs. Now, he has turned his attention to a more domestic breed of American antihero, Dick Wheeler – Wheeler to his friends – in his latest play: Linda Vista. A morose, middle-aged divorcée whose self-deprecation masks his manipulative ways. The title, meaning ‘Beautiful View’, blasts both barrels at white male privilege and, as well as being produced by Steppenwolf, has an all-time great acting ensemble. This Broadway run is packed with performances that skewer the subject – Ian Barford’s Wheeler is the real deal.

“The episodic nature of this nearly three-hour work turns playgoing into binge-watching. Letts’ dialogue is potently funny, and the psychological dynamics are often riveting in their accuracy.”
