A play about happiness and unhappiness. The father suddenly disappears. The whole of the large family assembles in the house in which they were born: three daughters, their partners and children, the aunt with her family. When searching for their father, the daughters are confronted with their seriously ill mother, family matters come to a head and old scars and wounds that should have healed become raw. The renowned American author wrote his “Three Sisters on the Prairie“ – they sum up their losses and keep fighting for love, happiness and a sense of life. A desolate, vacant house with boarded-up window shutters in the American Mid West becomes the scene of a family drama spiced up with a fair amount of sarcastic humour. Tracy Letts, known in our country above all as the author of the tragicomedy Killer Joe, surprisingly pursued the path of family drama, which has a great tradition in American theatre (Eugene O'Neill, Lillian Hellman, etc.). With August: Osage County, Tracy Letts won great acclaim on Broadway (four Tony Awards) and received the Pulitzer Prize for Best Play (2008).
Drama in czech language.
