This is a really terrific production! It's Long Day's Journey Into Night on steroids! (And that's a good thing). The cast is superb, all of them up to the task of illuminating this family's toxic history and relationships. The set was...continued

Great acting. The run time was quite long, but worth every minute.

Aside from being a very long play, it was very well played. The performance of the players was strong and even. The 'Fight Choreography' was outstanding - the best I have seen. This is an event theater lovers should not miss.

More Information



Brutal and hilarious, August: Osage County shook audiences to their core when it first exploded onto the American stage. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark underbelly of the modern American family.

“We are thrilled to present the first homegrown production of this amazing play, especially coming off of the record sellout run of Spring Awakening. This is an exciting time for Keegan audiences, indeed – and it is particularly fitting for us to present August: Osage County as the finale to our 15th Anniversary season,” says Mark A. Rhea, producing artistic director of Keegan Theatre. “This is the type of work that set the tone for Keegan’s reputation, and so it is very rewarding to end this incredibly successful season with such a powerhouse play. We have assembled an intensely talented and dedicated ensemble to bring these characters to life – I think audiences are going to be blown away experiencing this masterpiece in the intimate Church Street setting.”
