PORT ST. LUCIE – Treasure Coast Theatre continues it’s inaugural season with the critically acclaimed play August: Osage County, written by Tracey Letts. The play was the winner of both the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2008.
This compelling tragi-comedy exposes the dark side of a Midwestern American family. When the Weston family unexpectedly reunites after the Father disappears, their home explodes with repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Both fiercely funny and bitingly sad, this play will leave you laughing, crying, and contemplating long after the house lights come back on. The play contained very strong language and mature themes. It may not be suitable for all audiences.
The play is co-directed by Jose Torres and Rosemary Knight. While he has many years experience in both acting and directing, this is Jose’s directorial debut at Treasure Coast Theatre. He was most recently seen as Hector in the Theatre’s production of Squabbles. The show has a large cast of 13 that includes some familiar faces to theatregoers on the Treasure Coast – Ellie Nicholas, Rosemary Knight, Stephen Mayer, Patti Minden, Ellen Gillette, Keith Croes, Rachael DeBoer, Jennifer Schweichler, Milo Hassloch, David Tanner, Sam West, Samantha LaCroix, and Keith Russo.
August: Osage County opens on Friday, Sept. 6, at 8 p.m. The show runs for three weekends from Friday, Sept. 6 to Sunday, Sept. 22. Performances are held at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $22. Contact the box office for group sales and student pricing.
