AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
by Tracy Letts
May 10 - June 3, 2013
A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly — and uproariously — exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, August: Osage County comes to The Ringwald in a dynamic, re-imagined production.
The phenomenal cast of August: Osage County include Melissa Beckwith as Karen, Jan Cartwright as Mattie Fay, Dan Jaroslaw as Beverly, Kelly Komlen as Barbara, Bryan Lark as Steve, Jane MacFarlane as Violet, Joel Mitchell as Little Charles, Patrick O’Lear as Charlie, Amy Probst as Johnna, Travis Reiff as Bill, Jamie Richards as Deon Gilbeau, Katie Terpstra as Jean, and Jamie Warrow as Ivy. Joe Bailey will direct.
