Contemporary Theatre of Dallas will make its New York debut this summer with Lone Star and Laundry & Bourbon, two one-acts by James McLure. The plays, which will be directed by Cynthia Hestand, will be performed at The Clurman Theatre from July 5-26.

Lone Star is a comic look at a pair of Texas "good ol' boys" carousing on a Saturday night. The play was performed on Broadway in 1979. Laundry & Bourbon, originally conceived as a companion piece for Lone Star, focuses on the gossip of three small-town wives. Together, the plays provide a look at life in rural Texas.

The cast will feature Joey Oglesby, Mike Schraeder, Ken Orman, Marisa Diotalevi, Marianne Galloway, and Sue Loncar.

The production features set design by Rodney Dobbs, props and set dressing by Jen Gilson-Gilliam, sound design by Rich Frolich, lighting design by Kenneth Farnsworth, and costume design by Sue Loncar.
