Black comedies are the kind that manage to walk a line between the amusing and the dramatic, often touching on the darker
elements of life while also managing to find the humor in those events that make our hearts heavy. August Osage County is
exactly that kind of play, letting audiences peak in on a dysfunctional family that manages to hold itself together at the
end of the day.
August Osage County was written by Tracy Letts, the author of Bug, a drama steeped in paranoia that later became a critically
acclaimed film directed by William Friedkin. For August Osage County, Letts takes a look at the troubles of a family where
alcohol and drug abuse has torn the bonds between the individual family members to the breaking point.
August Osage County tickets aren't for everybody, but if you don't mind a
provocative dark comedy, this will fit the bill. St. Louis' theater fans will find much to enjoy in this amazing story. The
play earned Letts a Pulitzer Prize, so come expecting the best. But you should also expect that August
Osage County St. Louis tickets won't last long, so hurry up and buy them!
