The last time “August: Osage County” played Tulsa, it was January 2010, when the Broadway touring production starring Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons came to the Tulsa PAC.
John and Emily’s well-ordered, middle-class life together is strangely upended when Emily begins, one by one, to lose her senses. Smell, taste, sight, and hearing mysteriously disappear, until touch is all she has to perceive the world around her. “Raucous, funny and unexpectedly touching.” The New York Times.
Challlenging, moving, and ultimately hopeful, A Small Fire resonates long after the final curtain comes down. Playing off-Broadway in 2011, it makes it's Tulsa debut April 5 at Heller Theatre.
