Navigate Up
August: Osage County
By Tracy Letts
Directed by Jackson Gay
Thompson Theatre
"It's a deep and highly entertaining work, consistently rich, raw and intense, filled with viciousness and vicious wit." — Variety 

This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning dark comedy has become one of the most critically acclaimed plays in recent history. ​

A funny, furious family reunion from hell begins when the patriarch of the Weston family disappears into the hot summer night. His three daughters rush to the family home with their partners to care for their pill-popping and acid-tongued mother. Gathered together under one roof for the first time in years, dishes and insults fly, old wounds re-open, and revealed secrets stun in this brilliantly written tragicomedy that grapples with the humor, wit, and sorrow of our most intimate connections. ​

August: Osage County runs approximately three hours and twenty minutes, including two intermissions.

This production contains adult language, situations, and action which some people may find disturbing.​​
