"Fiercely funny and bitingly sad…[a] turbo-charged tragicomedy…" —NY Times.
"This is a play that will leave us laughing and wondering, shuddering and smiling, long after the house lights come back on." —NY Newsday.
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.
