The Marietta Players and Young Actors Playhouse will present “August: Osage County” at 8 p.m. on Aug. 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and 31 at Theatre on the Square in Marietta.

This raucous dark comedy transforms one family gathering into an evening of can’t-turn-away blood sport filled with sex, secrets, and really inappropriate comments. Revel in this searing and corrosive family train wreck featuring an ensemble of Atlanta’s favorite actors as you’ve never seen them before . . . like, say, cat-fighting at a funeral.

Theatre in the Square is at 11 Whitlock Ave., Marietta.
