1959 Pink Thunderbird, by James McLure, will take place at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 5, 2017 in Barnett Theatre.

The hottest thing to hit Maynard, Texas was Roy in his 1959 Pink Thunderbird. Laundry & Bourbon tells the girl’s side of the story in this desert town and Lone Star is the boy’s version. Roy and Elizabeth marry after high school and still dream of those summer nights in the T-Bird. Hattie and Amy bring catty tension to an afternoon filled with Laundry & Bourbon. In Lone Star, Roy and his brother Ray tie one on outside Angel’s Bar. Roy’s different since his return from Vietnam and the night takes a wrong turn when Cletis shows up with horrible news for Roy.  1959 Pink Thunderbird is full of road dust, but it sure was a sweet ride years ago. A talk back session is scheduled for students at the conclusion of the performance.
