RCT preps for next play

Shannon Brewster, Random Kennedy and Salien Liles will make their debut performances in the Dixie Center for the Arts in March in Ruston Community’s Theater’s production of Laundry and Bourbon.
The comedy, written by James McLure, is the second of two plays which will be presented during “A Night of One Acts” — the first being Suddenly Last Summer, a drama written by Tennessee Williams and directed by Daniel Shockley.
Liles said much of Laundry and Bourbon focuses on the struggles her character, Elizabeth, must endure when her husband returns from Vietnam.
