Lone Star

By James McLure
Directed by Jan Palmer Sayer
9th June 1988

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 is trying to re-establish his position in the community. He is 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 as it gradually comes out that Ray had slept with his brother’s wife during his absence and, horror of horrors, has just demolished his cherished Thunderbird.

But, despite all, the high good humor of the play never lapses, and all ends as breezily and happily as it began.
