This LibGuide was created to accompany the Visions & Voices event: August: Osage County. On Friday, September 18, USC students will attend the Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s Tony-winning production of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer-winning play, August: Osage County. Read more about the event at the Visions & Voices website.
About the play: In the spirit of William Faulkner and Eugene O’Neill, this grand, gripping play tells the story of the Westons, a large clan that comes together at their rural Oklahoma homestead when the alcoholic patriarch disappears. Forced to confront unspoken truths and astonishing secrets, the family must also contend with Violet, a pill-popping, deeply unsettled woman at the center of this storm. A rare theatrical event, this powerful work is filled with unforgettable characters and told with unflinching honesty.
