Everything you need to understand or teach August Osage County by Tracy Letts.
This multi-award winning play is the story of multiple generations of one family and their struggles to come to grips with the unexpected death of the family’s patriarch. Long-buried secrets, long-held resentments, and long-concealed vulnerabilities come to the surface and trigger life-changing realizations and transformations in the aftermath of what the audience knows, and the family suspects, is suicide. As the narrative unfolds, the play explores themes associated with mother/daughter relationships, the need to break free of suffering, and the longing for connection.
