Tracy Letts' August: Osage County
is a gripping and darkly funny play that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play. At an Oklahoma farmhouse, the Weston patriarch goes missing. The family gathers hoping for good news, but instead find themselves coming to grips with closeted skeletons and festering wounds that resurface at this homecoming. Populated with tour de force characters such as Violet, the pill-popping, chain-smoking, Eric Clapton-loving family matriarch, this black comedy charges forward with the mesmerizing effect of watching a deliciously choreographed train wreck of epic proportions. This wickedly funny portrait of a truly American family held a spot on Entertainment Weekly
's "best-of" list for the decade, described by the magazine as "a lightning-fast jolt of pure theatrical electricity."
