August: Osage County

Arsenal Center for the Arts
321 Arsenal Street Watertown, MA 02472

At an Oklahoma farmhouse, the Weston patriarch goes missing. The family gathers hoping for good news, but instead find themselves coming to grips with old closeted skeletons and festering wounds that resurface. Populated with tour-de-force characters such as Violet, the prescription drug-addicted, chain-smoking, acid-tongued family matriarch, August: Osage County by Tracy Letts is a black comedy that has 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." Don't miss the play that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play.
