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.”
