Linda Vista

By Tracy Letts

Paperback £15.99

Fifty-year-old Wheeler is moving into his own apartment after a nasty divorce. With a blend of humour and humanity, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts demonstrates the ultimate midlife crisis: the bewildering search for self-discovery once you've already grown up.

Linda Vista received its world premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago in the spring of 2017.  It opened on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theater in the autumn of 2019, produced by Second Stage in association with Center Theatre Group.

Press Quotes

'Letts is a master of pitch-dark comedies that measure the grisliest depths of human behavior… Linda Vista is very funny, equally unsettling… An inspired, ruthless take on the classic midlife-crisis comedy'

Ben Brantley - New York Times

'Linda Vista is such a strong, warmly human, and emotionally satisfying comedy of crotchety manners… The dialogue is razor sharp… Altogether lovely, when you stop to wipe your tears from all those howls of laughter'

New York Stage Review

'Linda Vista is that rarity of rarities, a long comedy that feels shorter - so much shorter, in fact, that you wouldn't willingly part with a word'

Wall Street Journal

'Tracy Letts is a profusely gifted playwright. In Linda Vista the writing is so zingy and the playwright's voice so sharp… Some of his most compassionate writing'
