1959 Pink Thunderbird

April 25 - May 18, 2014

By James McLure

Fasten your seat belts and hold on tight for a wild ride through small town Texas in this classic comedy filled with humor and heart!

In the first of these one act companion pieces, Laundry and Bourbon, join us on the front porch and listen to the sassy gossip of three rural Texan gals whose lives have fallen a little short of their dreams. Elizabeth confides that she hasn't seen her husband Roy in three days and she's worried that he can't seem to move forward since returning from Vietnam. Everything has changed for Roy, and about all he has left now is his adoring brother Ray, his wife Elizabeth and his now-crumbling '59 pink Thunderbird.

The hilarious Lone Star finds Roy and his brother Ray out back of the local bar on a Saturday night carouse trying to recapture their glory days with talk of girls, cars and candy bars. What happens to that pink Thunderbird? You'll have to see the show to find out! (Run time: approx. 2hr 10min)

"...amusing slices of Texas life that...shine light on the many levels of friendship and the sorrows that people keep hidden from their close friends and, if possible, themselves." -Chicagoreader.com

Featuring: Libby Amato, Lindsey Gagliano, Matt Koester, Rob Maass, Mary McClellan and Matt Zembrowski.
