August: Osage County
by Tracy Letts

‘This is the way the world ends,
this is the way the world ends.’ T.S. Eliot

Beverley Weston is missing. His drug-addled wife Violet attempts to come to terms with his disappearance, whilst his scattered children are forced to return to their childhood home. In the claustrophobic setting of a small Southern American town in Oklahoma, hard truths are revealed which push them all to breaking point.

August: Osage County is a dark comedy which expertly examines the intricate interactions of a dysfunctional American family. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama 2008, here is a play which pulls at the strings of what it is to love, to be loved and what happens when that love unravels.

Concs: £8
Schools: £6 for groups 10+
