    August: Osage County

    Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. 

    When the Weston family is unexpectedly forced to reunite after years apart, addiction, dark secrets, and an acidic matriarch mix to create a cocktail that unflinchingly exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

    "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.
