FEROCIOUS CLASH BETWEEN PAST AND PRESENT


This Pulitzer-prize winning play erupts with biting wit. After the disappearance of their alcoholic patriarch, three sisters along with their partners, reunite in AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY to console their razor-tongued, drug-addled mother Violet. As the family careens toward near-apocalyptic meltdown; old grievances are aired, family secrets unearthed, and new wounds are sowed.  This provocative new American play unflinchingly—and uproariously—unmasks the challenge of escaping the inescapable.


Flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play.
