Product description

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harbouring shady little secrets. When the extended Weston family is reunited after dad disappears, the Oklahoma household explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. After a sell-out run at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, "August: Osage County" has been hailed on Broadway as the 'best American drama of the past decade' ("USA Today"). Its themes of family secrets and retribution - and its truly epic scope - had critics rushing to declare its author the new Eugene O'Neill.
