This year’s play, “Doublewide, Texas,” is a trailer-park comedy by James, Hope and Wooten. The comedy follows the lives of the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas–four doublewides and a shed–as they work together to prevent the annexation of their trailer park.
“The plot is full of wacky characters doing silly things,” said Edward Powers, professor of theatre. “I think people should look forward to a lot of humor. Our actors are working hard on southern, country accents and bringing these hilarious characters to life.”
