About this show

Variety describes this play as a "very juicy...epic evening...( a) richly entertaining dysfunctional-family juggles the hilarious, the poignant and the appalling on a scale seldom seen." Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Tracy Letts' August: Osage County is a grand, gripping new play that tells the story of the Westons, a large extended clan that comes together at their Oklahoma home when the alcoholic patriarch disappears. Forced to confront unspoken truths and astonishing secrets, the family must also contend with Violet, a pill-popping, deeply unsettled woman at the center of this storm. Los Angeles Times says it is "sensationally entertaining...a feast for actors and audiences alike." Time Magazine named it the "#1 Show of the Year!" Don't miss this powerful production, a tale filled with unforgettable characters and told with unflinching honesty. Recommended for mature audiences, strong language and adult situations.
