Student Directed Play Set for January 29


A student directed one-act play will be presented on Saturday, January 29, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The play, Last Chance Texaco, by Peter Maloney will be staged at 7 p.m. in the Theatre Scene Shop, located directly east of the Old Science Building on the SWOSU campus. Admission is free, and the public is invited.

The play is sponsored by Alpha Psi Omega and directed by senior theatre major Jesus Sierra of Tipton.

Last Chance Texaco takes place in a small west Texas town and deals with issues such as abortion and abuse. Cissy (Sarajane Bidwell) and her mother Verna (Jamie B. Rowe) run a repair shop from their garage. When out-of-towner Ruth (Lauren Helmke) comes in with a flat tire, she inadvertently sparks conversation and emotional outpour.

These three women, who have nothing in common, come together at a crossroads in their lives.
