      In Laundry & Bourbon we visit Elizabeth’s back porch in Maynard, Texas, on a hot summer afternoon. Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are whiling away the time folding laundry, watching TV, sipping bourbon and Coke, and gossiping about the many open secrets that are so much a part of small town life. They are joined by the self-righteous Amy Lee, who can’t resist blurting out that Elizabeth’s husband has been seen around town with another woman. While the ensuing conversation is increasingly edged with bitter humor, from it emerges a sense of Elizabeth’s inner strength and her quiet understanding of the turmoil which has beset her husband since his return from Viet Nam.

      Lone Star takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small town Texas bar. Elizabeth’s husband, Roy, a brawny, macho type who had once been a local high school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Viet Nam, and trying to re-establish his position in the community. Joined by his younger brother, Ray, who worships him, Roy sets about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ray with tales of his military an amorous exploits. Roy cherishes three things in life: Lone Star beer, his wife Elizabeth, and his classic pink Thunderbird car, not necessarily in that order.

      The Virginia Holocaust Museum, the Carole and Marcus Weinstein JCC and the Richmond Symphony will present “Voices of Survival” on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at the Carpenter Theatre at Richmond CenterStage.

       

      This unique performance commemorates the triumph of Jewish survival in the camps that have become a synonym for the Holocaust, while celebrating the enduring power of artistic creativity that charges the human spirit. The program will reflect humanity’s triumph over the atrocities of the Holocaust by featuring works by composers who suffered at the hands of the SS as inmates in the ghettos and concentration camps of the Nazi empire. The creativity of the victims also includes words, video and music, performed to remember all those who perished while honoring the courage and tenacity of all those victims of the Nazis who survived, thereby serving to uplift us all in the act of commemorating one of human history’s greatest crimes.
