by Tracy Letts
Director - Christopher Rutherford
When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets.
Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
With rich insight and brilliant humor, Letts paints a vivid portrait of a Midwestern family at a turning point that is “not-to-be-missed” (Chicago Tribune).
Hailed by the New York Times as “hugely entertaining! A ripsnorter full of blistering, funny dialogue, acid-etched characterizations and scenes of no-holds-barred emotional combat.” The fiercely funny and bitingly sad "August" is a turbo-charged tragicomedy that is a feast for actors and audiences alike.
August Osage County was the recipient of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, and Drama Desk Award.
