August: Osage County takes over EPAC!

March 19 – April 4, 2015

August: Osage County includes adult language and material not suitable for young audiences

"EPAC's 'August: Osage County' is harrowing, heartfelt and hilarious"

Jane Holahan, Lancaster Online

EPAC is thrilled to be presenting Tracy Letts's savagely funny tragicomedy August: Osage County. It took Broadway by storm in 2008, and we’re confident it will do the same at EPAC.

Fear and humor in the Midwest: EPAC stages 'August Osage County''

Kelli Curtain, Theatre Sensation

Set in the Oklahoma county of the title, the play centers on the Weston family. The parents, Beverly and Violet, are in their sixties. When father Beverly suddenly disappears, their three adult daughters and Violet’s sister show up (with their various men) to deal with the crisis. But no one really wants to deal with Violet, who has mouth cancer, an addiction to painkillers, and a vicious disposition. It’s not long before all hell breaks loose.

'August: Osage County' review: EPAC pulls no punches in tense, funny look at family in crisis

David Dunkle, Penn Live

With artistic director Edward R. Fernandez at the helm, you can be sure that dramatic thrills await you. Take a trip to Osage County and watch the Westons put the fun back in dysfunctional.
