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.
