Langham Court Theatre is reaching the end of it’s 2011/2012 season, but they’re not quite done yet. 1959 Pink Thunderbird Convertible, the second last play of the season, is two plays in one meshing two different sets of characters in a small Texas town.
The first play, Lone Star, takes place behind a dirty bar in Maynard, Texas with two brothers, Vietnam vet Roy and Ray while the second play, Laundry and Bourbon, takes place in the same town with three ladies, Roy’s wife Elizabeth and her two friends gossiping outside on a sunny afternoon. The play deals with the characters as they, “try to come to terms with the choices they have made and the hand life has dealt them.” Although the two plays deal with sometimes heavy emotion, t the heart, 1959 Pink Thunderbird Convertible is a comedy.
I caught up with directors Paul Terry and Heather Jarvie from Langham Court to chat about their experience stepping into the roles of director and how the two plays came together as one.
