Set in 1975 during a sweltering afternoon and evening in Maynard, Texas (pop. 953), the two one-act comedies center around Elizabeth and her husband, Roy, whose 10-year marriage has been marked by Roy's wandering eye, his scarring two-year hitch in Vietnam, and their mutual ongoing admiration for his 1959 pink Thunderbird convertible. In the first show, “Laundry and Bourbon”, both the bourbon and the gossip flow freely as Elizabeth waits for her wayward husband with her friends Hattie and Amy Lee. As the bottle empties, past indiscretions and present fears bubble to the surface. The second one-act, “Lone Star”, set behind a small town Texas bar, finds Roy regaling his brother, Ray, with stories about his three loves: his country, his wife, and his beloved 1959 pink Thunderbird convertible. The New York Times called the show “an uproarious comedy that reveals 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, from themselves."
