“A trip home gets wildly out of hand when Marley returns to introduce her fiancé to her estranged father,” state production notes. “Hoping for a quick visit, she finds herself stranded in a liquor store haunted by her football hero ex-boyfriend, a single mom insistent on a girls’ night out, and the ghost of the bear-wrestling pioneer who founded their town. Lone Star Spirits is a comedy about those who leave, those who stay, and raising a glass to the ghosts of your past.”

Lone Star Spirits has set design by D'Vaughn Agu, costume design by Amy Pedigo-Otto, lighting design by Driscoll Otto, sound design by Josh Millican and original music by Phil Pickens.
