“Plenty of pitch-black humour…this sprawling family drama is both captivating and terrifying in its authenticity” –CBC
When their patriarch disappears, the Weston clan reunites to deal with the crisis. But with the Westons, family time is blood sport. Leading the way through a minefield of dark secrets, repressed truths and emotional savagery is the pill-popping mommy dearest, who stirs the toxic brew with perverse delight. Rich with insight and crackling humour, August: Osage County has been hailed as the first great classic of the 21st century. Don’t miss the Pulitzer Prize-winning tragic comedy that has audiences riveted and critics raving.
