Theatre Santa Fe presents two one-act comedies under the direction of Terry Klenk. The Fall plays “Laundry and Bourbon” and “Lone Star” by James McLure will be performed in the Fine Arts Hall, Oct. 12-15. (Note: Balcony seats may not be available for this production.)
Produced successfully on Broadway, this hilarious story tells the tale of a pair of Texas “good ole boys” on a Saturday night. “Lone Star” was conceived as a companion piece to follow “Laundry and Bourbon,” which together constitute a full evening of theatrical entertainment.
The action centers on the discontent and very funny gossip of three small-town wives whose marriages have turned out to be less than was hoped for.

“Mr. McLure’s strongest suit is dialogue — salty, comic banter that derives from colorful indigenous characters.” – NY Times
“‘Lone Star’ is an uproarious comedy about two bawdily rambunctious Texas brothers peppered with the playwright’s own special brand of cascading, spontaneous wit.” – NY Times
