One-Acts Explore Relationships in Post-Vietnam War Setting
.

Cal Poly Pomona's Theatre department will present the one-act plays Lone Star and Laundry & Bourbon from Oct. 25-27, in the Studio Theatre.

The companion plays, by James McLure, are set in a small town in Texas and examine the points of view of a young couple.

In the play Laundry & Bourbon, Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are folding laundry until the self-righteous Amy Lee joins them. During their conversation, Elizabeth's inner strength and understanding of life with her difficult husband begin to emerge.

In the second piece Lone Star, the story focuses on Elizabeth's husband, Roy, and his brother Ray. Roy has just arrived from Vietnam and is struggling to re-establish his position in the community.

Lone Star and Laundry & Bourbon are directed by faculty member Michael Kachingwe, and will be staged at 8 p.m. from Oct. 25-27. Tickets are $5 with a Cal Poly Pomona ID and $10 for general admission.
