August: Osage County

Performing Arts

By Russell Florence, Jr.

The Human Race Theatre Company and Wright State University will co-present the regional premiere of Tracy Letts’ 2008 Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning comic drama August: Osage County Sept. 23-Oct. 10 in the Creative Arts Center at Wright State, 3640 Col Glenn Hwy., Fairborn. An epic story of a troubled Oklahoma family in complete disarray following the disappearance of their patriarch, August features a cast of 13 (seven professional actors, six students from WSU) under the co-direction of Race organizers Marsha Hanna and Scott Stoney. Susanne Marley will portray volatile matriarch Violet Weston, the role she understudied in the acclaimed Broadway production that originated at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Patrons are advised that the three-and-a-half-hour play contains mature themes and strong language. Performance times vary as well and a performance calendar can be found at www.HumanRaceTheatre.org. All tickets are $21.  Call the WSU box office at (937) 775-2500 or visit online at www.HumanRaceTheatre.org.
