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
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.
