“Laundry and Bourbon” is centered around Elizabeth, who is sitting on the front porch of her small town Texas home folding laundry, sipping bourbon and coke, and tolerating the unwelcome visit of her former high-school classmates, Hattie and Amy-Lee. While she patiently awaits the return of her husband Roy, she discovers secrets that will test her strength.
“LoneStar” is the companion piece to “Laundry and Bourbon” and takes place behind a bar in a small Texas town where Roy, a macho, former high school hero back from a hitch in Vietnam is trying to re-establish his place in the community. He cherishes three things: his country, his wife, and his 1959 pink thunderbird. While drinking beer and regaling his adoring younger brother Ray with stories of his military and amorous exploits, Roy finds that Ray has a few stories of his own to share.
