Playmakers' 2017-18 Season

August: Osage County*

By Tracy Letts
Directed by Barbara Faherty
Oct. 27- Nov. 12, 2017

*For Mature Audiences.

Playmakers is proud to present August: Osage County, the Pulitzer Prize winning dark comedy written by Tracy Letts and directed by Barbara Faherty. Barbara brings a unique vision to this multiple Tony Award winning show with an all star cast of local actors. This is one production that you don't want to miss!

Synopsis:
A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
