August Osage POSTER

When the large Weston family reunites after their father unexpectedly disappears, their Oklahoma homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. A vitriolic matriarch, a toxic family history, generations of scandal and backstabbing, all contribute to making this a heart-pounding and compulsively watchable piece of theatre.  At once sensationally entertaining and deeply moving, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning play was also adapted into an Academy Award nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Join the Borelians for their once-in-a-lifetime undertaking of this immensely ambitious and challenging modern masterpiece.

Warning: mature subject matter, portrayals of drug-use, and strong language
