FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

This is the third of the Lowake, Texas series from the author of Daddy's Dyin' (Who's Got the Will?) and Cheatin'. It's the day before Christmas Eve and The Daughters of the Lone Star State are having their annual meeting. The old group is dying out, literally, so this year's effort to attract members is all out. When "white trash" and "coloreds" arrive, chaos erupts. This funny but biting play is a wonderful challenge for an all female ensemble. Nine characters are over 50 years old.

The third in the Lowake, Texas trilogy that includes the mega hit Daddy's Dyin': Who's Got The Will? Hilarious and pathetic characters are the epitome of small town racism. The ending is supremely satisfying. I am dying to play the ultra b*tch, who's president of "The Daughters." Or any of the older roles, really. Suitable for all audiences.
