Suzan and Buzz chat with director David Pausch about Mercury Players Theater's production of August: Osage County, running at the Bartell Theatre March 10-25.


By Tracy Letts

Directed by David Pausch

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoma 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 an amazing play that unflinchingly - and uproariously - exposes the dark side of a Midwestern American family. WINNER OF THE 2008 PULITZER PRIZE AND TONY AWARD.
