The dog days—they’re here. Heat so blinding and relentless that rational thinking becomes a massive feat. Endless hours with restless children. Nothing to do but get as naked as permissible and as ridiculous as possible.

Blessed are those who bring us farce in such moments. The genre celebrates the absurdity of human existence with improbable plot twists, exaggerated characters, larger-than-life situations and broad humor. It’s the funhouse mirror-image of tragedy, the gift of laughing at the preposterous nonsense of it all.

Theatre Pops’ production of Tulsa native Tracy Letts’ epic drama “August: Osage County” won the award for Outstanding Play at the 2014-15 Tulsa Awards for Theater Excellence ceremony, held Sunday night at Cain’s Ballroom.

The award earned Theatre Pops a cash prize of $10,000. It is the second straight year that Theatre Pops has won at the TATE awards — its production of “Seminar” was the third-place winner last year.

“On second thought, let’s not go to Camelot,” King Arthur says in the movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” “’Tis a silly place.”

The company’s 2012 production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” proved that it could stage shows of a quality commensurate with its aims of being the city’s only Equity theater troupe. Its newest show, “Godspell,” demonstrates similar qualities, especially when it comes to singing.

Whenever the hero of “The 39 Steps” needs to be helped or harassed, threatened or thwarted, chased or captured, it’s time to send in the Clowns.

That’s what half the cast of this stage adaptation of the Alfred Hitchcock film are called, and they are responsible for playing all but four of the dozens of characters needed to tell the story.

And there are only two of them.
