August Osage County

By Tracy Letts
This 2008 Pulitzer Prize winner is a dark comedic drama about a dysfunctional Oklahoma family
that is exquisitely adept at making each other miserable. When the family patriarch turns up
missing the family gathers around the drug addled matriarch. Family secrets and volatile
personalities result in situations that are at once laugh-inducing and uncomfortably tense. (Mature
audiences due to language and subject matter)

Denton Community Theatre presents “August: Osage County”. Family dysfunction both bites back and oddly soothes those in the Beverly and Violet Weston’s home during an Oklahoma summer. The players reveal their love-hate relationships, but there is comfort in the familiar for this curious clan and the dying, addicted woman at their center, Tuesday, September 17, 2013, in Denton, TX.
