TheatreLAB Presents: Riding the Bull

Sun Mar 10 4:00 pm
RIDING THE BULL
by August Schulenburg
in association with Henley Street Theatre
as part of the Acts of Faith Festival

March 10, 11, 12
March 17, 18, 19
at Gallery5*

Directed by Sarah Roquemore

In sleepy Godsburg, Texas, a love-connection between fat Lyza, a loud-mouthed, hell-raising cattle rancher, and skinny GL, a simple-minded, God-fearing, rodeo clown, brings unexpected wealth to the previously down-and-out couple. But as GL & Lyza soon discover, money can’t buy everything, and sometimes we only realize what matters most after we’ve lost it all. As crass as it is charming, this quirky morality play mixes ribaldry and irreverence with the deeper themes of love, faith, and the transformation that comes when we meet God face to face. Featuring Maggie Bavolack as Lyza Mary and Deejay Gray as GL Mitchell.
