Complete casting has been announced for the White Plains Performing Arts Center's upcoming production of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning August: Osage County.



Directed by Jeremy Quinn, the Tony-winning play will run Oct. 5-14 at the New York venue.

The cast will feature Laura Cable (Karen Weston), Eileen Glenn (Mattie Fay Aiken), Emily Kaplan (Jean Fordham), Suzy Kimball (Ivy Weston), Elyse Knight (Barbara Fordham), Mark Lanham (Bill Fordham), Daniel Mian (Little Charlie Aiken), Peter McClung (Charlie Aiken), Dick Nagle (Beverly Weston) and Robin Lilly (Violet Weston) with Derek Robert Smith (Steve Heidebrecht), Arthur Wise (Sheriff Deon Gilbeau) and Amanda Yachechak (Johnna Monevata).

"A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunited after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets," according to press notes. "Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly – an uproariously – exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family."

Tickets are $35 adults and $25 high school. This play is recommended for ages 16 and older. All performances are at the White Plains theatre, located on the third level of City Center off Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains.
