August: Osage County
April 23 2014 at 2:00 PM
Hilberry Theatre
Tony Award winner for Best Play August: Osage County, by Tracy Letts, closes the Hilberry Theatre’s 51st season in Midtown Detroit. Playing April 18 through May 10, 2014, this Pulitzer Prize winning play arrives at the Hilberry Theatre fresh off the critically acclaimed movie adaptation in theatres nationwide. Tickets for August: Osage County range from $10 – $30 and are available by calling the Hilberry Theatre Box Office at (313) 577-2972, online at Hilberry.com, or by visiting the box office at 4743 Cass Avenue on the corner of Hancock Street.   August: Osage County is set on the plains of modern day, middle-class Oklahoma. The Weston family members are all intelligent, sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable. When the patriarch of the household, Beverly, mysteriously vanishes, the Weston clan gathers together to simultaneously support and attack one another. His body is found five days later in the lake; his death is deemed a suicide. Violet, the drug-addicted matriarch, her three daughters, and their families try, unsuccessfully, to work out their problems from the time they arrive hoping to find Beverly, through his funeral, and on into the next day. Darkly comic, but also violent and sad, August: Osage County explores the painful issues all American families have to face, and then some.
