Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer prize and Tony Award for Best New Play. August: Osage County centres around the Wetson family, brought together after their patriarch, world-class poet and alcoholic Beverly Weston, disappears. His wife, Violet, depressed and addicted to pain pills and “truth-telling”, is joined by her three daughters and their problematic lovers, who harbour their own deep secrets, her sister Mattie Fae and her family, well trained in the Weston family art of cruelty, and finally, the observer of the chaos, the young Cheyenne housekeeper Johnna, who was hired by Beverly just before his disappearance, Holed up in the large family estate in Osage County, Oklahoma, tensions heat up and boil over in the ruthless August heat.
