SlapDab Theatre Company presents: Laundry and Bourbon & Lone Star


about the show:

Directed by Crosby Hunt and Deborah K. Anderson Produced by Shannon Bain for the SlapDab Theatre Company

featuring live performances by NYC indie favorite, Michael Hunter Band w/ Ian Hunt

Spend one hot night in Texas circa 1972 without leaving NYC. This pair of one-acts promises to do just that while putting infidelity, post-traumatic stress disorder, game shows, religion, and classic cars - all on center stage.

Laundry & Bourbon Set on the front porch of Roy and Elizabeth's home in Maynard, Texas, on a hot summer afternoon in 1972, this beautifully written one-act centers on the discontent and very funny gossip of three small-town wives whose marriages have turned out to be less than they hoped for.

Lone Star One Saturday night in the Summer of ‘72 a pair of Texas "good ole boys" carouse in the cluttered back yard of a small Texas bar. Roy has just returned from Vietnam, drinking Lone Star beer and regaling his kid brother Ray, who cherishes three things above all: his country, his hot young wife, and his 1959 pink Thunderbird. As the evening wears on, the underpinnings of Roy’s world begin to collapse. 

This evening of one-acts follows on the heels of the SlapDab Theatre Company's sold-out run of 'The Tennessee Project" that thrilled audiences this past spring also at the Tank Theater. This show is an adult comedy and is not appropriate for children;


about Michael Hunter:

Connecticut native Michael Hunter has been in New York City for a couple of years, paying his rent with musician-for-hire work ranging from drumming with metal bands to fiddling with an Americana group, from piano accompaniment with improv theater groups to orchestrating string arrangements in recording studios. He's one of those musicians who can do everything, and you’d kinda hate him for it if he weren’t such a jovial, unassuming person on top of it all.

His album, A Chance To Shine, is now available online for download at Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby, and Bandcamp.
