A tremendous achievement in American playwriting: a tragicomic populist portrait of a tough land and a tougher people. --TimeOut New York

Tracy Letts' August: Osage County is what O'Neill would be writing in 2007. Letts has recaptured the nobility of American drama's mid-century heyday while still creating something entirely original. --New York magazine

I don't care if August: Osage County is three-and-a-half hours long. I wanted more. -Howard Shapiro, Philadelphia Inquirer

This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the table with the great American family plays.--Time

One of the most bracing and critically acclaimed plays in recent history, August: Osage County is a portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest--and absolute worst. When the patriarch of the Weston clan disappears one hot summer night, the family reunites at the Oklahoma homestead, where long-held secrets are unflinchingly and uproariously revealed. The three-act, three-and-a-half-hour mammoth of a play combines epic tragedy with black comedy, dramatizing three generations of unfulfilled dreams and leaving not one of its thirteen characters unscathed.
