At an Oklahoma farmhouse, the Weston patriarch goes missing. The family gathers hoping for good news, but instead find themselves coming to grips with old closeted skeletons and festering wounds that resurface. Populated with tour-de-force characters such as Violet, the prescription drug-addicted, chain-smoking, acid-tongued family matriarch, August: Osage County is a black comedy that has the mesmerizing effect of watching a deliciously choreographed train wreck of epic proportions. Tracy Letts' wickedly funny portrait of a truly American family won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "It is a bravura performance. Using a simple set and a few cutesy sound cues, Bethel manages both to evoke the bone-crunching, blood-spurting horror of the tale and to add winking commentary about it. This is storytelling on steroids, augmented with stellar physical acting that comes and goes in a blink. ... 'The Odyssey' isn't just myth. It's augmented reality." --azcentral.com
