Overview

La desaparició del pare en circumstàncies misterioses obliga els membres d'una família a retrobar-se a la casa paterna, a Oklahoma. Aquesta excepcionalitat desencadena un seguit de situacions que oscil·len constantment entre la farsa i el drama, puntejades per uns diàlegs d'un enginy i una energia tan intensos com la xafogor d'agost. Letts retrata tres generacions d'una família del Midwest americà, personatges alhora singulars i propers, sota la influència de Violet, la matriarca, una dona tan delirant com políticament incorrecta.Escrita amb mestria i estrenada arreu del món, en aquesta anàlisi de les tensions i els fantasmes d'una família actual de l'Amèrica profunda, Letts barreja sàviament els ingredients més diversos de la tradició dramàtica nord-americana i occidental: combina l'amargor espessa d'un Eugene O'Neill amb l'humor més efervescent de la comèdia popular anglosaxona, i a estones fins i tot és com si Eduardo De Filippo s'hagués reencarnat en un dramaturg nord-americà del segle XXI. Agost ja es pot considerar, sens dubte, un clàssic del nostre temps.

Meet the Author

Fill d'un actor i d'una coneguda autora de best-sellers, Tracy Letts (Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1965) és una de les veus joves més interessants de la dramatúrgia nord-americana contemporània. Agost, estrenada l'any 2007 a Chicago i a Nova York, li va suposar la consolidació definitiva com a autor: la peça va tenir un èxit immediat i es va veure reconeguda amb un Tony i el Premi Pulitzer a la millor peça teatral l'any 2008. La resta de la seva obra inclou peces com Killer Joe (1993), Bug (1996), Man From Nebraska (2003; obra finalista del Premi Pulitzer) i Superior Donuts (2008). Com a actor, ha treballat en sèries com The District i Prison Break.
