Description: ldquo; August is the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years.rdquo;- The New York Times ldquo;A tremendous achievement in American playwriting: a tragicomic populist portrait of a tough land and a tougher people.rdquo;-David Cote, TimeOut New York ldquo;Lettsrsquo; astonishing creation . . . is mammoth in many ways. Itrsquo;s a full, three-act evening, more than three hours in length. And there are 13 characters, each getting Lettsrsquo; full attention. He creates a parade of memorable people spanning several generations of unhappiness and unfulfilled dreams. August: Osage County has introduced a major playwright to Broadway.rdquo;-Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press ldquo;This fusion of epic tragedy and black comedy is . . . a bold step forward for Letts, whose earthy, distinctly contemporary wit flows throughout. Originally presented at Chicagorsquo;s Steppenwolf Theatre, his account of a family whose secrets and lies come spilling forth under duress ranks with the best American drama of the past decade.rdquo;-Elysa Gardner, USA Today One of the most bracing and critically acclaimed plays in recent Broadway history, August: Osage County is a portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest-and absolute worst. When the patriarch of the Weston clan disappears one hot summer night, the family reunites at the Oklahoma homestead, where long-held secrets are unflinchingly and uproariously revealed. Tracy Letts is the author of Killer Joe , Bug , and Man From Nebraska , which was a finalist for the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He is a member of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company, where August: Osage County premiered.
