Laundry & Bourbon / Lone Star
The show opens this weekend! Here’s the email I sent out, halfheartedly begging my friends to come see it.
Hey everyone — after a long layoff, I’m back on the stage! Many of you watch me drink beer and curse on a regular basis, but come to my show this weekend, where you can pay for the privilege!
The show consists of two self-contained yet related one-acts about a small Texas town. It should be at least reasonably funny.
I know that some of you had expressed concern that the plays would be trading on offensive Southern stereotypes. I too shared this concern early in the process, but rest assured that this hot-button area has been treated with taste and dignity. Wherever possible, actual rednecks were used throughout the production to ensure everything is on the level. But thank you for your sensitivity.
Full details follow.
