One of the most bracing and critically acclaimed plays in recent Broadway history, Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning “August: Osage County” is a portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest—and absolute worst.
When the patriarch of the Weston clan disappears one hot summer night, three generations descend into the pressure cooker of the family homestead for the first time in years. Unsettling secrets and repressed truths are unflinchingly and uproariously revealed in the furnace-hot chaos of sharing space and care as a family. This mammoth of a play combines epic tragedy with black comedy, dramatizing three generations of unfulfilled dreams and leaving not one of its 13 characters unscathed.
Apron founder Hallie Flower directs a dynamic company of actors including Keely Eastley, Katrina Spenceman, Mark Bateman, MacKenzie Klem, Julia Tadlock, Chris Parker Jennings, Dan Bennett, Jon Hathaway, Libby McCawley, Ben Stockman, Ann-Marie White, Jonathan Ray, and Falco Schilling
