"Laundry and Bourbon" & "Lone Star": Surefire Comedy

It promises to be unusual. The Repertory Actors Workshop (ReAct) will produce James McLure's Texas comedies "Laundry and Bourbon" and "Lone Star", presented with an all Asian American cast and directed by David Hsieh.

The first play "Laundry and Bourbon" is set on the back porch of the Caulder household in Maynard, Texas. It concerns three women, their relationships and their gossip as they fold laundry and sip drinks.

"Lone Star" is set in a roadhouse saloon. Here we see the men of the Caulder household. They're just good ole boys, joined by the town nerd.

The plays offer a contrast in the way men and women act and are filled with ironic commentaries about life.

The cast features Gigi Jhong, Hing Lam, Liane Loui, Lisa Marie Nakamura, Dylan Okimoto and Joseph S. Yang.

Throughout the play's run, several worthy causes will benefit from box office proceeds. These include: the NW AIDS FOundation (Sept. 15) the Group Theatre (Sept. 18), and the University of Washington School of Drama (Sept. 22).

Also, audience members will receive $1 off admission with a canned food donation.

All performances are at the Theatre Off Jackson (406 - 7th Ave S.).

For more information, call 364-3283.
