"...this searing masterpiece is...the Alliance's finest hour; it is must-see theatre..." —Manning Harris, Atlanta INtown Paper 

"Bottom line: A knockout." —Wendell Brock, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"...a raucous, hellbent Rabelaisian thrill ride toward self-destruction..." —Felicia Feaster,

Cruelty’s more fun when you keep it in the family.

Think your family has issues? This raucous dark comedy transforms one family gathering into an evening of can’t-turn-away blood sport – filled with sex, secrets, and REALLY inappropriate behavior. Revel in this searing and corrosive family trainwreck featuring an ensemble of Atlanta’s favorite actors as you’ve never seen them before . . . like, say, cat-fighting at a funeral.

One of the most lauded plays of the decade, August: Osage County won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award for Best Play, and a well deserved reputation as an emotional Armageddon you don’t want to miss. The New York Times calls it “flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years.”
