Harlequin Productions presents August: Osage County. This family drama is a 2008 Pulitzer Prize winner written by Tracy Letts. Set in a huge farmhouse on the plains of modern day, middle-class Oklahoma, August: Osage County is darkly comic as it shares the revelations of the embattled Weston family. They're all intelligent and sensitive but have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable. August: Osage County opens Thursday and runs through September 16th. Tickets and more information are available at HarlequinProductions.org.
