August: Osage County Wrap Up Discussion

A few weeks back, The Highwood Theatre wrapped up their run of August: Osage County. The show may have finished, but the conversation it has generated continues. I sat down with The Highwood Theatre’s Executive Director Kevin Kearney, Performance Coordinator Matthew Nicola and Actress Layla Edwards who played Mattie Fae Aiken in the show.

Please enjoy our discussion on the show, the topic of mental health issues and how The Highwood Theatre leverages its programing to discuss such issues. For some context on August: Osage County and The Highwood Theatre’s approach to the material check out my preview here.

Nate Fisher
I am part Dramatic Writer, part Forensic Scientist, a bit of a Jack-of-all-trades and all child at heart. I joined Silver Spring Inc as Content Manager in June 2014 and haven’t stopped smiling since. I’m passionate about movies, nostalgia, meeting new friends, making people smile and helping them accomplish their dreams. As a newcomer to Silver Spring I just want to keep watching and see where it’s going. From an outside perspective, it was clear upon moving here that there is something very special happening in this city right now. It’s my mission to help the Silver Spring community continue to grow and enjoy the ride.
