Makeshift Theatre Co.

Lone Star and Laundry & Bourbon
By James McLure

Makeshift Theatre Co., now in its third season, announces auditions for its upcoming Prime Time Production: Lone Star and Laundry & Bourbon.

Excellent apart, brilliant together, James McClure's two darkly comic one-acts weave the interconnecting stories of three men and three women on one hot summer day in Maynard, Texas. In Laundry & Bourbon, Elizabeth, Hattie, and Amy Lee fold laundry, share gossip, and try to withstand the withering heat and each other. In the companion piece, Lone Star, beer and a 1959 pink Thunderbird convertible draw Ray, Roy, and Cletis together as they while away an evening in their tiny Texas town, but startling revelations threaten to tear them apart.

Seeking 3 Men & 3 Women

Laundry & Bourbon:
Elizabeth Caulder:
(Late 20's early 30's) Strong, Sensuous Woman. Intelligent but underdeveloped. Would be capable of handling most men other than her husband Roy. Therein lies the attraction. A woman Devoid of self pity. A forthright person who would call your bluff.

Hattie Dealing: (Late 20's early 30's) A woman whose bluff needs calling. Blowsy, brassy, used to getting her own way. Mother, wife, talker. Has as adage for every occasion. Anything that has gone wrong in her life is Vernon's fault. Vernon is her husband.

Amy Lee Fullernoy: (Mid-late 20's) Bright, sassy, spoiled. Baptist to the teeth. Given to gossip. Life revolves around the country club. An old enemy of Hattie's.

Lone Star:
Roy Caulder: (Late 20's early 30's) Lean, tough, beginnings of a beer gut. Undereducated, belligerent, his army service has nearly given him a since of irony. He voted for Nixon, likes John Wayne movies, and thinks Raquel Welch is a great actress.

Ray Caulder: (Mid-late 20's) Roy's younger brother. He is larger than Roy, slope-shouldered, sloth like, and slow. He has no idea what irony is. Wears a John Deere hat. Probably sleeps in it.
Cletis Fullernoy: (Mid-late 20's) A friend of Ray's. His life should have been terminated in high school. Married the first girl he dated that didn't spit on him. Works in his father's store. Gets lost in the stock room. Has a plastic pocket holder. Sleeps with it.
