The action takes place over the course of several weeks in August inside the three-story home of Beverly and Violet Weston outside Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The play is reminiscent of Dumas’ well-made play “Camille”, in that it centers on the waning days of a sharp-tongued addicted dying woman who is surrounded by a large cast of eccentric lazy hangers-on as the various twists in the plot and love-hate relationships unfold. Note the similarity – her name in Letts’ play is “Violet”, whereas in “La Traviata” (made from “Camille”) the character’s name is “Violetta”. But at the end of the play the man is dead and the woman lingers on.
