    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    Directed by Scott Shattuck.

    When their patriarch disappears one hot summer night, the colorful Weston family hurriedly assembles at the rural Oklahoma home of his hilariously caustic, pill-popping wife. Their outrageous conflicts, secrets and lies collide to launch the corrosive comedy that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and became the basis for the hit movie starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Recommended for mature audiences.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).
