Meet the Westons. Dad has disappeared. Mom’s popping pills. One daughter’s bound for divorce. A romance is brewing. A lie has been uncovered. And a hell of a family reunion is about to begin. And that’s just the start. (Left: A family tragedy has brought the Weston Family and close relatives together on a hot day in August; for this dysfunctional family the fireworks that ignite are not unexpected.)
Equally harrowing and hysterical, Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize, Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning August: Osage County has already been hailed as an American classic. So spend an evening in Oklahoma’s Osage County where it is often laugh-out-loud funny with plot twists that are dark and nasty. Right: a young Native American girl (Ali Archetti) is interviewed for a housekeeper position by Beverly Weston (Christopher Gibbs), patriarch of the family and soon to bring tremendous upheaval to those around him.
