Theatre Tulsa presents “Laundry & Bourbon” and “Lone Star” at 8 p.m. July 9-11
at Liddy Doenges Theatre, Tulsa Performing Arts Center.
“Laundry & Bourbon” takes place on a dusty front porch in Maynard,
Texas. As the afternoon sun beats down, Elizabeth and Hattie catch up on
small town tales between TV commercials and piles of boxer shorts. When
Amy Lee, the town gossip, stops by unexpectedly the bourbon flows and
the laundry flies. There are rumors about Roy, Elizabeth’s husband, but
Elizabeth may have an even bigger secret under wraps.
“Lone Star” follows Roy, a Vietnam vet, and his brother Ray as they
drink the night away out back of Angel’s Bar. Roy loves his wife and he
loves his ’59 T-Bird, but nothing else seems certain anymore. A case of
beer and several candy bars later (and after a contentious visit from
Cletis, an old high school acquaintance), Ray reveals some hard and
explosive truths. Roy is left with a two options – keep running, or
stand tall and face his future.
Both plays contain strong language and are recommended for mature
audiences only. Tickets are only $5. For more information, call (918) 587-8402 or go online to http://www.theatretulsa.org.
