The best show I’ve seen in community theater this year!  And I’ve seen a lot.  I am so glad we came.” – Opening Night Patron

“The performances were so strong…that after a while it felt that we were not watching actors but the actual members of the family….We’ve been going to Arena Stage for years, and your production [of August: Osage County] was one of the best plays we have ever seen!”   – Opening Weekend Patron

“Just extraordinary acting. You won’t find a better entertainment value in the entire DC Metro Area.”  – Saturday Night Patron

“I think this is the best show we’ve ever done.” – A Founding Member

What the critics are saying…

“Michael Donahue directs a strong, searing ensemble in this production, which proves to be as riotous as it is intensely tragic.” 

“This is a show that will have you laughing through your tears.”

“The actors all do fantastic jobs with their characters, but Jayne L. Victor’s and Beth Gilles-Whitehead’s performances as Violet and Barbara will stay with you for a long time.” 

“A stellar production team creates the ideal atmosphere for this piece.”
