The Capitol Theatre Ensemble Presents – August: Osage County
The Capitol Theatre Ensemble presents, winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, Tracy Letts’ darkly comedic drama August: Osage County is worthy of the praise it has received from critics and audiences.
Hitting the big screen in 2013 with a stellar cast including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Ewan McGregor – the film version of Letts’ play has won Academy Award nominations for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress for both Streep and Roberts.
The Weston family members are all intelligent, sensitive creatures who have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable. When the patriarch of the household mysteriously vanishes, the Weston clan gathers together to simultaneously support and attack one another.
A unique Capitol Theatre experience upstairs in our Sculthorpe Studio, director Shannon Oliver will be experimenting with our space in the style of “theatre in the round” for an immersive audience experience. Patrons will be seated within the Weston Family home, experiencing the laughter and the tears in close proximity to the action on stage.
