Langham Court Theatre Presents AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY

Standard
August: Osage County exposes a large family in a spectacularly entertaining meltdown during a hot August in Oklahoma. A missing father, an alcoholic, pill-popping matriarch, three squabbling sisters and relentless revelations of indiscretion catapult the viewer into a riveting theatre experience.
Tracy Letts is an American playwright, screenwriter and actor who received a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award in 2008 forAugust: Osage County. He also won a Tony Award for his portrayal of George in the revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 
 
August: Osage County is based on influential events in Letts’s own Oklahoma family: His maternal grandfather’s suicide (when he was 10 years old) and his grandmother’s ensuing drug addiction. The 2013 movie version starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts loses a lot in translation during its 121 minutes. Whereas, the play has three acts that last three hours and is stocked full of humour and sorrow.
