"Lone Star" by James McLure. Dave McKee as Roy, Dean Wray as Ray, and David Britto as Cletis. Physically distanced rehearsals have begun outside in the spacious courtyard of the Historic Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park.
The Classics Theatre Project presents an OUTDOOR production of this classic comedy! Yes, OUTDOORS! Even in these extraordinary times, we are presenting live theater. The actors have rehearsed outdoors, the play is blocked with social distancing, and the audience seating will be social distanced.
It will be a little warm outside, but so fun to see live theater again! Come and laugh with us with this Texas comedy favorite!
James McLure's "Lone Star" takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small-town Texas bar. Roy, a brawny, macho type who had once been a local high-school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam, and trying to reestablish his position in the community. Joined by his younger brother, Ray (who worships him), Roy sets about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ray with tales of his military and amorous exploits. Apparently Roy cherishes three things above all; his country, his sexy young wife, and his 1959 pink Thunderbird. With the arrival of Cletis, the fatuous, newlywed son of the local hardware store owner, the underpinnings of Roy's world begin to collapse. But, despite all, the high good humor of the play never lapses, and all ends as breezily and happily as it began.
