The Westons have arrived in Denver

The Pulitzer Award winning play “August: Osage County” is making its Denver premiere at Vintage Theatre.

2016 Henry Lifetime Award winner Deb Persoff takes on the leading role of Violet Weston in this family drama.

“She’s the matriarch,” Persoff said. “She’s the backbone of the family. So her whole ideal is about truth. I don’t know what that means to different people, but to Violet it means whatever she feels is the law.”

Persoff went on to say that she admired Violet for her strength and courage, but that they are different people when it comes to how they show their affection and love.

“My sense of loving and Violets are very different,” she said. “Mine is palpable, more giving, more sensitive. So I admire her, but I wouldn’t want to implement her into my being on a daily basis.”

Director Bernie Cardell speaks highly of the wonderful women, including Persoff, he gets to work with on this show.

“It’s been such a wonderful experience working with Deb,” Cardell said. “We also have the three sisters played by Haley Johnson, Lauren Bahlman and Kelly Uhlenhopp, no strangers to the stage. As a director you learn how to give them a little leeway and they will fill the space.”

Persoff says that “August: Osage County” is a special night of theater. One in which the audience experiences a whole show.

“People use to come to the theatre for the evening,” Persoff said. “Stay with a drama, a comedy for several acts and say ‘Now I can go home I am satisfied.’”

“Osage County” is a three act, three and a half hour production. As Persoff said seeing this show is an investment in a story that you get to see all the way through.

“August: Osage County” is now open at Vintage Theatre playing until Oct 15.
