I’ve been knee-deep in rehearsals for a beast of a play this fall. August: Osage County is Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer-winning play that you might have seen on Broadway or in the movie theaters last year.
This challenge sort of landed in my lap – a dream come true for any actress! – through a friend of a friend. Of course, I said yes, knowing that this project would push me and challenge me in ways that I haven’t been pushed and challenged in a long time. And yeah, growth spurts don’t always feel good – but it sure is nice to meet the challenge!
Three acts of real-life relationships, tragedy and hilarity are all wrapped up in this “beast of a play,” as the director, Jay Wallace, comments. In other words… things are going pretty well 🙂
Show opens first week of October at Santa Ana College. I’ll keep ya posted.
