Centres around the Weston family, brought together after their patriarch, world-class poet and alcoholic Beverly Weston, disappears.
The matriarch, 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.
Bursting with humour, vivacity, and intelligence, August: Osage County is both dense and funny, vicious and compassionate, enormous and unstoppable.
Warning: Coarse language, adult themes, sex & drug use references.
August: Osage County
Tickets can be purchased here or at the door.
The show runs until July 6. If you live in or are visiting Perth, WA. I highly recommend this production – not because of my involvement – but because of it’s uniqueness, style and depth not commonly seen in community theatre. Check it out! An early review is here.
