Tony Award-winning play hits HART

“August Osage County” tells the story of a family coming together under extreme conditions when someone has gone missing. As you meet each member, they present one image. As is true with most people, the longer you spend the more you know and, in this case, the darker it gets. It received the 2008 Tony Award for “Best Play”.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $8 for students. There will be special $6 discounted tickets for students during the Sunday matinees.
