Why See Linda Vista?

A new world premiere play at the Steppenwolf!

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Tracy Letts returns to the Steppenwolf in 2017 for his world premiere play Linda Vista, which explores the arrested development of a 50 year old misanthrope as his life goes through drastic changes. A Steppenwolf ensemble member, Letts is also an accomplished writer/actor on both stage and screen, notably for his role on Homeland as Andrew Lockhart, and for his screenplay for Killer Joe in 2011 starring Matthew McConaughey. His last play was Mary Page Marlowe, also at the Steppenwolf.

Directed by Dexter Bullard, Linda Vista explores in hilarious yet poignant detail of 50-year old divorcee Wheeler. Stuck with a mundane job and feeling that his best years have long passed him by, he finds himself in an awful rut. However, having moved from his ex-wife's garage to his own apartment, his life shows promise in the romantic department - that is, if he can learn to keep his ill-informed opinions to himself. Will Wheeler learn to open his heart and mind to new possibilities? Or is he doomed to keep failing at life no matter what?
