Calendar Image

Two one act comedies

Performed by the Arts Enter Thespians

Directed by Clelia Sheppard and Mellisa Stein

Historic Palace Theatre
301-305 Mason Avenue
Cape Charles, VA  23310

In “Laundry and Bourbon”, directed by Clelia Sheppard,  the action centers on the discontent and very funny gossip of three small-town wives whose marriages have turned out to be less than was hoped for. It was written as a companion piece to “Lonestar”, directed by Mellisa Stein, a  hilarious study of a pair of Texas "good ole boys" on a Saturday night carouse.  The play introduced McLure as an exciting new playwright of major potential. The plays constitute a full evening of theatre fun.

Tickets
Adults - $15
(not appropriate for children)
Available at the door or at the Stage Door Gallery
