  LTM Presents "August: Osage County"
Little Theatre of Manchester will present Tracy Letts’ AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY from April 13 to April 29, 2018, at Cheney Hall. FIVE TONY AWARDS INCLUDING BEST PLAY, 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama The sweltering August heat of Pawhuska, Oklahoma. A vanished father. A mother that pops pills like jellybeans. Three sisters harboring shameful secrets. Playwright Tracy Letts’ brutal and hilarious masterpiece will lift you out of your seat with laughter one moment and stun you into silence the next. But be warned, the Weston’s venom-tongued matriarch Violet serves up so much bitter hilarity and poignancy, don’t be surprised if you need a few antacids after this family dinner.
