About the Title

The title August: Osage County is borrowed from a poem of the same title (1995) by American poet Howard Starks (1929–2003), who served as a mentor to playwright Tracy Letts. The play unfolds over the course of several weeks in August in Osage County, Oklahoma, specifically in the town of Pawhuska. The poem and the play both address themes of aging, time, waiting, and death.
