Midwestern Family Drama on TM Stage

Memphis, TN – August: Osage County, winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize for Drama, opens on the Lohrey Stage April 27 and runs through May 13, 2018. The large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, and their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets.  Mix a pill-popping, scathingly acidic matriarch, sisters harboring shady secrets, suspect spouses and relatives attracted to all the wrong things and you’ve got an unflinching exposé of the dark side of a Midwestern American family.


“Where would theater be without the family drama?” reflects director Jerry Chipman. “This Tracy Letts’ drama rides high in the category of a family gathering turning into an onslaught of lies, accusations, disappointments and, delightfully, finely barbed humor.” With rich language and diverse characters the play is a saga, Chipman adds, “… it’s like settling down with a well-crafted novel in which a calmly introduce incident early on returns as a jaw-dropping revelation.” The seasoned cast at Theatre Memphis includes Greg Fletcher, Martha Jones, Anne Marie Caskey, Gregory Boller, Gabriella Gonzalez, Meghan Lisi Lewis, Emily Chateau, Emily Peckham, Bob McIntosh, Eric Schultz, Sarah Solarez, Matthew Hamner and Jason Wolfkill.

 “Bringing material of this quality to the community is always exciting,” Theatre Memphis Executive Producer Debbie Litch relates. “A contemporary story about a highly dysfunctional family literally coming around the proverbial dinner table is a relatable, if not uncomfortable, plot that many can relate to in this day and age. This show has been recognized in the industry as one of the best written and we will bring our best to the old farm table to make this an outstanding production.”
