A hugely-acclaimed black comedy exposing the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

When the large Weston family is reunited in Oklahoma after the disappearance of their father, they let loose a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets.

First staged in the UK at the National Theatre in 2008 following its premiere in Chicago, August: Osage County won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Tony Award for Best Play and Critics' Circle Award for Best Play.

'one of the truly great nights of American theatre'

- Independent

'something special... a dramatic tour de force, first smouldering and then blazing with acrimony, appalling behaviour and vicious home truths'

- Telegraph

'fully deserves to join the roll call of classic American plays'

- Independent on Sunday

'a triumph'

- Sunday Times

'Sensationally entertaining...Tracy Letts' fiercely funny, turbo-charged tragicomedy is, flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years'

- New York Times
