Everyman Theatre (new location): - Tracy Letts; dir: Vincent M. Lancisi.
One of the most bracing and critically-acclaimed plays in recent Broadway history, August: Osage County is the hilarious and biting portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest—and absolute worst. When the patriarch of the Weston clan disappears one hot summer night, the family reunites at their Oklahoma homestead where long-held secrets are unflinchingly and uproariously revealed. This mammoth play combines epic tragedy with black comedy, dramatizing three generations of unfulfilled dreams, leaving not one of its 13 characters unscathed or any audience member unmoved. A Regional premiere! Chosen by Entertainment Weekly as one of the three most important plays of the past 25 years. Mature subject matter and language.
