This is one big hit!  “#1 Show of the Year!” TIME

August is a feast for actors and audiences alike."

- Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

A play that will lift you  out of your seat with laughter one moment and stun you into silence the next.”

- Jay Reiner, The Hollywood Reporter

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

This richly entertaining dysfunctional-family juggles  the hilarious, the poignant and the appalling on a scale seldom seen.  Impeccably cast.”

- Dennis Harvey, Variety

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® for Best Play

“…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.”
