August Osage County - March 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. March 10 & 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

Our spring play will be “August: Osage County,” by Tracy Letts. Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best New Play, “August: Osage County” centers around the Weston family, who has been brought together after their patriarch, the world-class poet and alcoholic Beverly Weston, disappears. Violet, the matriarch, is depressed and addicted to pain pills and “truth-telling.” She is joined by her three daughters and their problematic lovers who harbor their own deep secrets. The family dynamics are further complicated by Violet’s sister Mattie Fae and her family who are well-trained in the Weston family art of cruelty. Finally, Johnna, who was hired by Beverly as the housekeeper just before his disappearance, rounds out the cast. As the family is holed up in the large family estate in Osage County, Oklahoma, tensions heat up and boil over in the ruthless August heat. Bursting with humor, vivacity, and intelligence, “August: Osage County” is both dense and funny, vicious and compassionate, enormous and unstoppable.
