August: Osage County
By Tracy Letts
Directed by Jay Nixon
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 play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
In this immersive theatre experience, you’ll laugh and cry with the Westons, embarking on a visceral, thought-provoking and often laugh-out-loud journey that nearly everyone can relate to.
