Osage County. Tracy Letts’ tale centers around the Weston family, who all
come home to the desolate plains of Oklahoma, after their famous poet and
patriarch father, Beverly Weston, disappears. Tensions heat up and boil over in
the ruthless August heat as three strong-willed sisters, Barbara, Ivy, and Karen
finds themselves holed up with their ferocious and equally strong-willed mother,
Violet. Bursting with humor, vivacity, and intelligence, August is bothcomplicated
and funny, vicious, and compassionate, enormous, and unstoppable.
Time wounds all heals. – Tray Letts. Playwright, screenwriter, and actor,
