About Linda Vista
Wheeler just turned 50. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him. A move from the cot in his ex-wife's garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love and sex—complicated, painful, and hilarious. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be in this major new play from the writer of August: Osage County.
In this Steppenwolf Theatre Company production, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning playwright Tracy Letts delivers
a male midlife crisis tragicomedy of epic proportions (Chicago Sun Times). This
smart, very funny, hugely entertaining play (Daily Herald) resonates with a new sense of sobriety in the wake of #MeToo.
