“August: Osage County,” Tracy Letts’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, will have its Long Island premiere at the Southampton Cultural Center next Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The Center Stage presentation will continue through April 6.
The play, which won five Tony Awards and was made into an Oscar-nominated film, is set in Oklahoma, where a seriously dysfunctional family gathers in the wake of the disappearance of its patriarch, a once-famous poet.
Directed by Michael Disher, the production features Paul Consiglio, Bonnie Grice, Samantha Honig, John Leonard, Joan Lyons, Joseph Marshall, Linda McKnight, Philip Reichert, Stephan Scheck, Emily Selyukova, Mark Strecker, Josephine Wallace, and Edna Winston.
General admission is $22, $20 for senior citizens on Fridays only, and $12 for students under 21. Show times are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sunday afternoons at 2:30.
