Miranda Hawk and Peggy Rosin in "August: Osage County," produced by Mercury Players Theatre.
Though it’s since become an award-winning film starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Ewan McGregor, August: Osage County began its life as a play – and an excellent one at that. Written by Tracy Letts, it follows a dysfunctional Oklahoma family that begins falling apart after their father disappears. The acidly funny play won both a Pulitzer and a Tony in 2008. Bartell Theatre-Drury Stage, March 10-25, at 7:30 pm Thursdays and 8 pm Fridays-Saturdays (4 pm, March 25) plus 4 pm, March 19.
