“ONE WILD RIDE... Estelle Parsons seems to have been preparing all her life for this role… Shannon Cochran matches her performance blow for blow… You’re left craving more.” - Paul Hodgins, The Orange County Register
“VERY JUICY…EPIC EVENING. This richly entertaining dysfunctional-family juggles the hilarious, the poignant and the appalling on a scale seldom seen. Impeccably cast.”- Dennis Harvey, Variety
“…the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years.” - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
August: Osage County is a grand, gripping new play which tells the story of the Westons, a large extended clan that comes together at their rural Oklahoma homestead when the alcoholic patriarch disappears. Forced to confront unspoken truths and astonishing secrets, the family must also contend with Violet, a pill-popping, deeply unsettled grandmother at the center of this storm.
August: Osage County is a rare theatrical event — a large-scale work filled with unforgettable characters, a powerful tale told with unflinching honesty.
Academy Award®-winner Estelle Parsons stars as the family matriarch Violet, reprising her role from Broadway where The New York Times raved, “Estelle Parsons gives a superb performance … sends chills down your spine. It may prove to be a crowning moment in an illustrious career.”
