The University of Evansville Theatre opens Josh Tobiessen's LONE STAR SPIRITS, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov.18, in the May Studio Theatre. At times hilarious and at times heartbreaking, this family drama is a poignant story about a small-town life, the haunting feeling one experiences by returning to their childhood hometown, and the spooky surprises life always seems to have in store.
