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.
