Did You Know?
[re August: Osage County
(2013)]I know that there's another dimension in the film that is not in the play, and that's Osage County. I would take them [filmmakers] to my home and show them the landscape, that's kind of profound for me as a guy who not only has written a play, but written a play that's somewhat autobiographical. The landscape itself becomes a character.
His play, "Man from Nebraska" at the Redtwist Theatre in Chicago, Illinois was awarded the 2011 Non-Equity Joseph Jefferson Award for Production of a Play.
