"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.

EPAC Presents a Riveting AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTYKelli 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.
