August: Osage County

by Tracy Letts

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. 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.

Tracy Letts, in his Broadway debut, creates a hugely ambitious, highly combustible saga that will leave you reeling…it’s a great big exhilarating gift.”
– NY Daily News

This is a play that will leave us laughing and wondering, shuddering and smiling, long after the house lights come back on.”
– NY Newsday
