August: Osage County

By Tracy Letts
Directed by Heath A. Diehl

February 20 and 27 at 2 P.M.

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.

August: Osage County is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Mimi’s Famous Company

By Nina Wright
Directed by TBD

June 17, 18, 24, and 25 at 8 P.M.
June 19 and 26 at 2 P.M.

Mimi’s Famous Company is a wicked comedy that explores the origin of greed. The play’s two pivotal roles are the title character, a pert teenager who’s infinitely more talented than Patricia Highsmith’s sinister “Mr. Ripley,” and Sheila, her Drama Queen mom with a keen taste for revenge and regrettable taste in men. Mimi may be (almost) perfect, as she and her mother contend, or else she is the very embodiment of evil. Perhaps wickedness, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Winner of BSP’s first annual playwrighting contest.
