A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harbouring shady little secrets. When the extended Weston family is reunited after dad disappears, the Oklahoma household explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. After a sell-out run at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, "August: Osage County" has been hailed on Broadway as the 'best American drama of the past decade' ("USA Today"). Its themes of family secrets and retribution - and its truly epic scope - had critics rushing to declare its author the new Eugene O'Neill.

Publishers Weekly, 2015-02-02 With a keen ear for the Southern drawl, this sharply written play gets a stellar presentation by L.A. Theatre Works. Set over the course of several weeks, the play follows the Weston family as they are pulled back to their Oklahoma homestead in the wake of a tragedy. With uncontrolled ferocity, this dysfunctional family proceeds to bicker and battle, belittle and besmirch each other with every emotional weapon in their considerable armory. At its heart is Momma Violet, played to shrewish perfection by Deanna Dunagan: her drug-induced, nonstop vitriolic pronouncements and revelations are alternately painful and hilarious in their delivery, and the reactions and interactions of the excellent cast are just as well developed and delivered. Robert Pine, as patriarch Beverly Weston, practically steals the show in the opening scene-which is a touching and laugh-out-loud performance, perfectly delivered and totally indicative of the richly textured performances of the tragic comedy that follows.
