Bergen County Players Present Pulitzer and Tony Winning Drama, "August: Osage County"

(Oradell, NJ) -- Hilarious, provocative and moving are three words often used to describe a theater piece. What’s unusual is to find a show that easily warrants all three. “August: Osage County”, to be presented by the Bergen County Players, is that rare play, a true American masterpiece. The New York Times called it “… a ripsnorter full of blistering, funny dialogue, acid-etched characterizations and scenes of no-holds-barred emotional combat”, comparing its matriarch, Violet Weston, favorably to Amanda in “The Glass Menagerie” as a manipulator, Regina in “The Little Foxes" as a tactician and the soused Martha in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" for the sharpness of her tongue.

Director Dottie Fisher remembers the experience of seeing the show on Broadway as “absolutely startling.” She marveled at the play’s layers and the rich roles it presents for women who must deal with mother-daughter relationships, alcoholism and drug addiction. The show will run Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm from March 21st - April 18th with the exception of Easter weekend April 3-5. "August: Osage County" contains mature language and adult themes and is not recommended for pre-teens.
