Marley, with her fiancé in tow, hopes for a quick family visit to her small hometown. Instead, an impromptu reunion unfolds thanks to the unwanted presence of an ex-boyfriend and a female classmate. While the former revels in the halcyon memories of high school football glory, the latter escapes the monotony of small-town motherhood with nights of getting blitzed with her similarly discontented friends. Add to this company the ghostly presence of the town’s founder (a bear-wrestling pioneer) and the stage is set for a surreal evocation into how the lives we attempt to leave behind can continue to haunt us. This regional premiere finds popular mainstays Terry Hempleman and John Catron joined by Christian Bardin, Nate Cheeseman, and Thallis Santesteban, each of the three making their Jungle debuts. Directed by Sarah Rasmussen, the ghostly chains of Josh Tobiessen’s Lone Star Spirits look to be rattled with poignant hilarity.
