“The Pillowman” and the world preem of a play by Tracy Letts (“Bug”) are among the offerings of the 2006-07 season at the Steppenwolf Theater in Chi.

Lett’s latest, “August: Osage County,” follows a Kansas family grappling with the disappearance of its patriarch. Morton will appear in the production, set to begin perfs in June 2007.

Before that, Letts and Morton will co-star in the Steppenwolf’s January production of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal.”
