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 Broadway play that unflinchingly – and uproariously – exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
Fresh from a thrilling, sold-out run at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, August: Osage County has audiences riveted and critics raving. This thrilling new Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tracy Letts has earned 5 Tony Awards, including Best Play.

The embedded You Tube promotional video above gives you a taste of the show, but this little gem I found on YouTube gives you not only a great sampling of the script, but introduces two gay You Tube actors, Michael Arden and Jeffery Self who have been producing some pretty funny stuff. If they were in the Berkshires, I would pair them with one of our resident theatres as social networking geniuses. They've got promise as actors, too. They have a future in their future.
