Description:

"This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the dinner table with the great American family plays." —Time Magazine

October 19-November 3, 2012
Previews October 17 and 18
Directed by Katie Laris

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman 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 a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.

Contains adult language and material.
