After being nominated for a slew of awards across numerous industries, the renowned August Osage County is coming to Canberra for a season at the Canberra Theatre Centre starting October 17 and running until November 2.

Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, Tracy Letts’ black comedy/drama August: Osage County continues to receive high critical acclaim from both critics and audiences alike.

August Osage County is set on the plains of modern day, middle-class Oklahoma. The Weston family members are all intelligent, sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable. When the patriarch of the household mysteriously vanishes, the damaged Weston clan gathers together to simultaneously support and mercilessly attack one another.

While the recent release of the movie of the same name starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, has further enhanced the status of this wonderful play and is in no doubt a wonderful rendition, nothing compares to the experience of a live performance.

August Osage County presented by Free-Rain Theatre Company will run at the Canberra Theatre Centre from October 18 until November 2.
