“AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY” is a fiercely funny and bitingly sad turbo-charged tragicomedy about an Oklahoma clan in a state of near-apocalyptic meltdown. This 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.

Packed with unforgettable characters and dozens of quotable lines, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is a tensely satisfying drama, interspersed with remarkable evocations on the cruelties and (occasional) kindnesses of family life.

Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (valid card + ID) is required for entry. Audience will be required to wear a facemask that completely covers the nose and mouth. Rules are subject to change based on government regulations.
