FSC Theater Department Presents Two Plays in One Night

The Florida Southern College Theater Department and the Festival of Fine Arts are teaming up to present two, one-act plays from Nov. 1-4 in the Frank Lloyd Wright Circle in the Round Theatre.

James McLure’s one-acts Lone Star and Laundry and Bourbon give a picture of life in the sleepy town of Maynard, Texas. The two plays reflect off of each other where Laundry and Bourbon focuses on the wives of the town while Lone Star reflects on the men.

Together, the comedies depict how the Vietnam War impacted the people who stayed and those who went to war.

Laundry and Bourbon is set on the front porch of Roy and Elizabeth’s home in Maynard, Texas, on a hot summer afternoon. The act follows Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are folding laundry, watching TV, drinking Bourbon and Coke, and gossiping about the open secrets of their small town.

With the addition of a third character Amy Lee, the play changes to become more humerus as they discuss the affair of Roy and how Elizabeth deals with the situation. 

Lone Star follows in Act two as the men of the town take the stage.

The play takes place in the backyard of a bar in Maynard, Texas. Roy, Elizabeth’s husband is introduced as he is trying to reestablish his position in the community after returning home from Vietnam.

He is joined by his younger brother Ray, Roy becomes drunk while telling him stories of his time in Vietnam. Cletis, a third man of town, joins the act as Roy’s world starts to fall around him.

The play is produced as a second play production and runs from November 1 through 4. Showtimes are at 10pm with Sunday’s show at 7:30pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Buckner Theatre Box Office.
