August: Osage County
by Tracy Letts
August: Osage County is a grand, gripping new play which tells the story of the Westons, a large extended clan that comes together at their rural Oklahoma homestead 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 grandmother at the center of this storm. August: Osage County is a rare theatrical event — a large-scale work filled with unforgettable characters, a powerful tale told with unflinching honesty. Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play.
