AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
at the National( Lyttleton)

A FINE AND PROPER PLACE
By ROGER B. HARRIS
Published June 20 2008

  Family Ties/PH: Sara Krulwich

Fresh from its triumphs at the Tony Awards last Sunday- it took home five Tony Awards, including Best Play- the Tracy Letts comedy-drama August: Osage County, will cross the pond to open in London in November. The specific dates have not been announced yet, but the venue will be the National's Lyttleton Theatre.

The UK version is expected to have the original US cast in tow. That means Tony winners Deanna Dunagan ( Best Leading Actress ) and Rondi Reed (Best Featured Actress) should be gracing the London stage. The show also won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

Anna D. Shapiro (who also won a Tony) directs the play, which concerns itself with an unexpected family reunion after the father of the house disappears. Before the curtain comes down, secrets have been exposed, truths revealed and all sorts of facts, better left undiscovered are in plain sight.
