The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego has announced casting for its production of Tracy Letts' August: Osage County, to run May 7-June 12. Sam Gold will direct.

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and numerous other awards, Letts' sprawling saga about three generations of an Oklahoma family has drawn comparisons to the work of American dramatists Eugene O'Neill, Sam Shepard and Tennessee Williams. When their father goes missing, the huge and completely dysfunctional Weston family reunites and sparks fly. Violet, the take-no-prisoners matriarch, struggles for control over a family set to implode over secrets, lies and betrayals.

The cast will feature Joseph Adams (Bill Fordham), Guy Boyd (Charlie Aiken), Todd Cerveris (Sheriff Deon Gilbeau), Robert Foxworth (Beverly Weston), Kimberly Guerrero (Johnna Monevata), Carla Harting (Ivy Weston), Ronete Levenson (Jean Fordham), Robert Maffia (Steve Heidebrecht), Lois Markle (Violet Weston), Kelly McAndrew (Karen Weston), Angela Reed (Barbara Fordham), Robin Pearson Rose (Mattie Fae Aiken), and Haynes Thigpen (Little Charles Aiken)

The creative team will include David Zinn (scenic design), Clint Ramos (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design), and Fitz Patton (sound design).
