Award winning Two Planks Theater Company presents August: Osage County, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. The production runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 5 PM at 515 Cutlers Farm Road, Monroe CT from October 20th-29th.

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 play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

“In Tracy Letts’ ferociously entertaining play, the American dysfunctional family drama comes roaring into the twenty-first century with eyes blazing, nostrils flaring and fangs bared, laced with corrosive humor so darkly delicious and ghastly that you’re squirming in your seat even as you’re doubled-over laughing.” ~ Variety
