August: Osage County

Directed by Aaron Lamb

 

 

Beginning August 24, Harlequin Productions presents August: Osage County at the State Theater in downtown Olympia. This family drama is a 2008 Pulitzer Prize winner written by Tracy Letts. The production runs from August 24 – September 16, and tickets are available at www.harlequinproductions.org or 360-786-0151.

 

Set in a huge farmhouse on the plains of modern day, middle-class Oklahoma, August: Osage County is darkly comic as it shares the revelations of the embattled Weston family. They are all intelligent and sensitive but have the uncanny ability of making each other absolutely miserable. When the esteemed poet patriarch of the household mysteriously vanishes, the Weston clan gathers together to simultaneously support and attack one another as they negotiate the hilariously cynical and drug fueled force field generated by the devious matriarch, Violet.

 

American opera singer Ellen McLainheads up the cast as the pill popping Violet. Ellen is best known for her roles as GLaDOS in the video game series Portal as well as the feature film Pacific Rim. The remaining cast includes an array of regional and local actors: Angela DiMarco, Doug Fahl, Ann Flannigan, J.
