I am a big fan of Tracy Letts. I was stunned by August Osage County. The story was layered and challenging. Letts’ range is vast and the paths that he chooses are not the beaten ones. His work as an actor is masterful. With Mary Page Marlowe, however, he has left me in the dust. I have no idea what was intended or why an audience was included in on the proceedings. None. Zero. Zip.
