August: Osage County

Not exactly a feel good play about a family, but it does make you feel somewhat better that yours is not as messed up (hopefully) as The Westons. It has sex (with questionable partners), drugs (mom) and (some) rock and roll. The actors are all fantastic with the exception of two -- the teenager, and the "Indian," they are extremely stiff, artificial and are constantly yelling their lines. Nevertheless, the cast received a standing ovation.

I recommend  August: Osage County.
