Event Description

Langham Court Theatre is proud to present James McLure’s comedy in two acts '1959 Pink Thunderbird Convertible' – with 'Laundry and Bourbon' directed by Heather Jarvie and 'Lone Star' directed by Paul Terry. Both Heather and Paul are most known for their roles on stage but both are taking on a new role at Langham – directing! Set Design by Lisa Preston and Lighting Design by Chad Laidlaw. '1959 Pink Thunderbird Convertible' Previews Wednesday, April 25, Opens Thursday, April 26 and runs through to Saturday, May 12, 2012.

James Miller McLure, Jr. was an American playwright and grew up in Shreveport where he was educated by the religious order of the Jesuits. His interest for acting and theatre came from performing in high school Shakespearean plays. In 1975 McLure moved to New York City where his plays 'Lone Star' and 'Pvt. Wars' were presented off-Broadway in 1979. In 1980, 'Lone Star' and 'Laundry and Bourbon' were shown together as '1959 Pink Thunderbird' at New Jersey’s McCarter Theatre.

'1959 Pink Thunderbird' is a comical yet sentimental look at the effects war has on both the soldier and those left behind. The play brings together the dynamic characters of both Laundry & Bourbon and Lone Star into one complete experience. Set in 1973 and revolving around the Vietnam War, three couples from Maynard, Texas try to come to terms with the choices they have made and the hand life has dealt them. The ladies spend a hot afternoon folding laundry and gossiping all while sipping Coke and bourbon while Vietnam vet, Roy, tell tales of his three loves: his country, his sexy young wife, and his 1959 pink Thunderbird. Despite their troubles, their experience seems to teach them that there is always something to be thankful for.

Langham’s cast include Jared Gowen as Roy; Morgan Cranny as Ray; Alasdair Howie as Cletis; Shara Campsall as Elizabeth; Kate Pagett as Hattie and Melissa Taylor as Amy Lee.
