ABOUT THE PLAY:
By Tracy Letts
Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award
A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major play that unflinchingly–and uproariously–explodes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
