Did You Know?
[on 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.
He was awarded the 2008 Tony Award for Best Original Play, "August: Osage County" performed first at the Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago and at the Imperial Theater in New York City.
