Dark but riotously funny 'August: Osage County' at Kavinoky

Tracy Letts’ 2007 masterpiece “August: Osage County,” a dark and vicious (but often riotously funny) look into the fractured home of an Oklahoma family on the edge, won the Tony Award for best play and the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2008.

“It’s the play in the season that scares me the most, obviously, because people no longer want to sit in the theater for two-and-a-half or three hours,” said Kavinoky Artistic Director David Lamb. “I think that on stage we’re there to tell a story and to entertain and if we can do that at a pace and speed that is right, it doesn’t matter about the time.”
