August: Osage County
By Tracy Letts
Thursday – Saturday: 7:30pm
Sunday Matinee: 2:00pm
at St. James United Church
183 Portland St, Dartmouth, NS B2Y 1J5
One of the most bracing and critically acclaimed plays in recent history, August: Osage County is a portrait of the dysfunctional American family at its finest-and absolute worst. When the patriarch of the Weston clan disappears one hot summer night, the family reunites at the Oklahoma homestead, where long-held secrets are unflinchingly and uproariously revealed.

We’re Moving, Again.
A full year has passed at our temporary home at 327 Windmill. We have presented two full productions at two separate venues and have another two on the way. However, this year has not been kind to us. We have burned through our savings as a society and are in danger. However, there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel!
We have been in talks with St. James United Church about making them our home. They have a lovely stage and are allowing us the use of their Sanctuary for rehearsals as well as another room for storage. There is, however, only limited space for storage and so we are looking for more solutions such as either renting more storage space or purchasing a shipping container we can keep behind the church.
In 2020 we asked our patrons for help and were shocked with the outpouring of support from everyone. Because of the funds raised at that time we were able to stay open during the pandemic and continue to produce shows. We would not be here without you.
We now have to ask you for help again. We have yet another move in front of us that will incur costs. We must create storage solutions for our props, set and costumes. We are also installing more lighting and sound for the theatre space. All of which have costs which are eating away at our reserves.
So, at this time, we would humbly ask you to help us keep community theatre alive in Dartmouth and support us anyway you can. If you are able to aid us please show your support by hitting the donate button below. We need supporters to get us through this challenging time. We can’t do what we do without you!
