August: Osage County By Tracy Letts

Mar 3 @ 7:30 pm - Mar 19 @ 2:00 pm

$20 - $33

August: Osage County – March 3-19, 2017
A Joint Project with Repertory Theatre of Iowa
By Tracy Letts

August: Osage County! A vanished father. A scathingly acidic, pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady secrets. As winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, this instant classic was named by Onstageblog as the best play of the 21st Century. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. This unflinchingly, and uproariously funny play exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

“Packed with unforgettable characters and dozens of quotable lines, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is a tensely satisfying comedy, interspersed with remarkable evocations on the cruelties and (occasional) kindnesses of family life.” —NY Sun
