A Joint Production with Repertory Theatre of Iowa
The Story: After the disappearance of her husband Beverly, Violet’s family comes together to comfort her in her time of need. However, this reunion of family is anything but wholesome and soothing. In her large and hot home in rural Oklahoma, family secrets, addictions, and tension boil to the surface. This is a major American play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

“Packed with unforgettable characters and dozens of quotable lines, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is a tensely satisfying comedy, interspersed with remarkable evocations on the cruelties and (occasional) kindnesses of family life.” —NY Sun
