Genre: Comedy
by James McLure, directed by Janice Goldberg

Alternately funny and biting one-act plays about life in the small town of Maynard, Texas near the end of the Vietnam War.

LAUNDRY AND BOURBON & LONE STAR paint a hilarious portrait of the goings-on in the dusty one-horse town of Maynard, Texas. In LAUNDRY AND BOURBON, Elizabeth and Hattie sit on the porch folding laundry, sipping drinks and gossiping. They're soon joined by the self-righteous Amy Lee, who can't resist blurting out a bombshell: Elizabeth's husband, Roy, has been seen around town with another woman.

In LONE STAR we meet Roy, who's back from Vietnam and anxious to begin his life again. As he drunkenly recounts his military exploits, his younger brother Ray confesses a shocking secret that makes Roy question his entire life.
