The City Theatre Austin presents August: Osage County
The City Theatre will present the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning August: Osage County. Tracy Lett’s tale centers around the Weston family, who all come home to the desolate plains of Oklahoma, after their famous poet and patriarch father, Beverly Weston, disappears. Tensions heat up and boil over in the ruthless August heat as three strong-willed sisters, Barbara, Ivy, and Karen finds themselves holed up with their ferocious and equally strong-willed mother, Violet. Bursting with humor, vivacity, and intelligence, August is both complicated and funny, vicious, and compassionate, enormous, and unstoppable.
