Beverley Weston is an academic and poet of some renown.
When he suddenly goes missing, the clan gather at their family home in Osage County, Oklahoma,to confront their secrets, lies, abberations and the lacerating tongue of Beverly's wife, Violet.
With thirteen of New Zealand's finest actors, three acts and enough revelations to power several soap operas, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is a corrosively funny, brilliant, bitter indictment on where the American Dream went wrong.
AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY has electrified audiences in New York and London, winning five Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
