David August in Improvanov: Anton Chekhov Unscripted Improvanov - Anton Chekhov Unscripted

The best performances here were from David August as the pining ineffectual intellectual, Frank...

-Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

David August, as the dilettante Frank, masters the frail superiority of a man who speaks six languages but can't do anything else.  His monologue about their maid's obsession with soap and his belief in its uselessness comes very close to emerging from Chekhov's own hand.  August also has a talent for stinging insults aimed at the soldier.

David August plays the incredibly naive hero worshipper with saving dignity.

-Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Free Press

Applause for all involved.

-Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

The cast of professional actors (appearing in differing roles throughout) is uniformly strong.

Holiday - by Philip Barry Holiday by Philip Barry

David August in the meaty role of kid brother Ned, flits around the edges of the story giving an excellent perfomance as a weak, often drunk, lost soul.  His second-act monologue on what drinking means to him is one of the best moments of the play, in spite of the fact that it does nothing to further the plot.
