August: Osage County opened in October 2011. It was the recipient of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and has won 7 Tony Awards. It also ran on Broadway and at the very prestigious National Theatre in London and was a huge critical and popular success.

The play had its Indian premiere (with permissions/royalty fees to the writer) on October 16, 2011 at Siri Fort in New Delhi and has completed over 60 shows and traveled to Gurgaon, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Dubai, Chennai, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Lucknow and Pune where they had full houses and a terrific response.

It's a contemporary play and with a very well known cast, is an internationally acclaimed piece with a universal theme.

August: Osage County is the story of the Weston family, all of whose members are intelligent, sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable.

At the Goa house of the Westons, the patriarch, Leon, goes missing. The family gathers together hoping for good news, but, after five days, his body is found in a lake, a presumed suicide. The play takes everyone through the family's pain, not just over Leon's death, but of living in a very dysfunctional family for many years. Violet, the drug-addicted, brain-addled matriarch, her three daughters, and their families try, unsuccessfully, to work out their problems from the time they arrive (hoping to find Leon), through his funeral, and on into the next day. Fiercely funny, but also violent and sad, August: Osage County explores the painful issues all families have to face, and more.

A statement on the degeneration of the modern family, the play explores the relationships between mothers and daughters, siblings and spouses in an absolutely riveting, explosive, searing and fiercely funny way.
