Kenneth Moraleda as Bill Fordham with Pinky Amador as Barbara Weston-Fordham and Thea Gloria as Jean Fordham

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is set on the plains of modern day, middle-class Oklahoma. The Weston family members are all intelligent, sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable. When the patriarch of the household mysteriously vanishes, the Weston clan gathers together to simultaneously support and attack one another.

Written with a strong sense of humor, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY tells the meltdown of the Weston family as each member has personal difficulties that are unresolved.

Theater stalwart Chris Millado, who is currently the Vice-President and Artistic Director of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, will direct the cast spearheaded by Baby Barredo and Pinky Amador.

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY will run from Friday, February 21 to Sunday, March 16, 2014 at Onstage Theatre (2/F Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas corner Legazpi St., Makati City)

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY received the Jeff Award (Chicago – 2007) for Best New Work and Best Production. These two awards were closely followed in 2008 by other six awards: The Drama Desk for Best New Play; the Drama League for Distinguished Production of a Play; the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play and Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play.

Most especially, it was also in 2008 when the play received the biggest awards in the industry, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play.

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY was originally produced in 2007 by the Steppenwolf Theatre Company at the Downstairs Theatre in Chicago. After conquering Broadway from October 2007 until June 2009, it made its UK debut at London’s National Theatre in November 2008. Consequently, many other international productions were produced in Israel, Tel Aviv, Puerto Rico, Australia, Germany, Austria, Argentina, Sweden, Peru, Spain, New Zealand, Holland, India, Poland, and the Netherlands. The movie version, starring Meryl Streep, Ewan McGregor and Julia Roberts, opened late 2013.
