Step Into the Drama-Filled Lives of the Weston Family During August: Osage County

Searching for the perfect way to start your weekend? Join Tulsa Performing Arts Center this Saturday, February 15th for the award-winning play August: Osage County! Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best New Play, August: Osage County centers around the Weston family, brought together after their patriarch, world-class poet and alcoholic Beverly Weston, disappears.

The matriarch, Violet, depressed and addicted to pain pills and “truth-telling,” is joined by her three daughters and their problematic lovers, who harbor their own deep secrets; her sister Mattie Fae and her family, well-trained in the Weston family art of cruelty; and finally, the observer of the chaos, the young housekeeper Johnna, who was hired by Beverly just before his disappearance. Holed up in the large family estate in Osage County, Oklahoma, tensions rise in the ruthless August heat.

Bursting with humor, vivacity, and intelligence, August: Osage County is both dense and funny, vicious and compassionate, enormous and unstoppable.

"This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the dinner table with the great American family plays." — TIME Magazine
