SSCC Theatre presents August: Osage County
Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 2008 Tony Award for Best Play
SSCC Theatre proudly presents Tracy Letts’ August: Osage County, playing in The Edward K. Daniels Auditorium at Southern State Community College, Hillsboro, Ohio, March 27 & 28 at 7:30 p.m. and on March 29 at 3:30 p.m.
A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
August: Osage County features the acting talents of: Stormi Bledsoe, Bob Brown, Paula Campagna, Kendra Clisby, Coni Coleman, Benjamin Gullett, Hannah Hengler, Leslie Holmes, Mark Holmes, Bronwyn Jones, Bob Lambert, John Scott, and Eric Silcott.
At each performance of August: Osage County, The Film Foggers Photo Club of Hillsboro will be displaying works of their members that tie into the theme of the play. Film Foggers Photo Club began in 1990 with 10 members and in the late 1990’s was given responsibility of the photography display at the Highland County Fair, which it still manages. Monthly meetings, September through May, are held the third Thursday of the month at the Highland County Administration Building basement at 7:00 p.m. in Hillsboro.
