August: Osage County
North Bay Premiere
By Tracy Letts
Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Drama
Stage Direction by Craig A. Miller
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.
Cast: Tice Allison, Saskia Baur, mollie boice, Kate Brickley*, John Browning, Alan Kaplan, Nicola Peluso, Chris Schloemp, Jessica Short, Ron Smith, Beth Woodruff, Jill Zimmerman, David Yen
