The JT Pac is staging a play, ‘Osage County’, directed by Lillete Dubey,on September 15 at 7.15 p.m. ‘Osage County’, set in Goa, is the story of the Weston family, all of whose members are intelligent and sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable.
At the Goa house of the Westons, the patriarch, Leon, goes missing. The family gathers together hoping for good news, but, after five days, his body is found in a lake, a presumed suicide.
The play takes us through the family’s pain, not just over Leon’s death, but of living in a dysfunctional family for many years.
Violet, the drug-addicted, brain-addled matriarch, her three daughters, and their families try, unsuccessfully, to work out their problems from the time they arrive (hoping to find Leon),through his funeral,and on into the next day.
Darkly comic, but also violent and sad, ‘August: Osage County’ explores the painful issues all families have to face, and more. A statement on the degeneration of the modern family, the play explores the relationships between mothers and daughters, siblings and spouses in an absolutely riveting, explosive, searing and fiercely funny way. The play is of 2 hours and 15 minutes duration.
