One of the most acclaimed plays of the last decade and winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this modern classic brought Broadway audiences to their feet cheering at every performance. When their father goes missing, the huge, sprawling and completely dysfunctional Weston family reunites and sparks fly. Violet, the take-no-prisoners matriarch, struggles for control over a family set to implode over secrets, lies and betrayals. A large and complex modern-day masterpiece that the New York Times hailed as “flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years.” Contains strong language.
