August: Osage County Summary

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize for Drama, August: Osage County comes to Broadway directly from its critically acclaimed sold-out engagement at Chicago's Tony Award-winning Steppenwolf Theatre Company. This thrilling new American play by Pulitzer Prize finalist Tracy Letts (Bug, Killer Joe) has been hailed by the New York Times as "hugely entertaining! A ripsnorter full of blistering, funny dialogue, acid-etched characterizations and scenes of no-holds-barred emotional combat." When their patriarch vanishes, the Weston clan must return to their three-story home in rural Oklahoma to get to the heart of the matter. With rich insight and brilliant humor, Letts paints a vivid portrait of a Midwestern family at a turning point that is "not-to-be-missed" (Chicago Tribune). Anna D. Shapiro (The Pain and the Itch) directs the "dazzling good" (Chicago Sun-Times ensemble in what Variety calls "a deep and highly entertaining work, consistently rich, raw and intense, filled with viciousness and vicious wit."
