Syracuse Shakespeare-in-the-Park brings you the CNY regional premiere of August: Osage County by Tracy Letts! The powerful play written by Tracy Letts in 2007 was an award winning movie subsequent to its debut at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago and a very successful Broadway and National Theatre London run. The play won five Tony Awards including Best Play and ran for 648 performances in addition to winning the Pulitzer Prize! It has been compared to Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, by the late Edward Albee, in its tenacity and ferocity as it sheds many lights on one family, some comic, but mostly tragic. These insights and body blows resonate with families trying to recover from life's twists and turns. How people change us and those we love as we deal with real and imagined problems like success and failure, love and hate and devotion and addiction are powerful forces that can color our existence now and in the future. You will laugh and you will cry but you will never forget this powerful show.
