What’s Happening at LCT

-Onstage Soon-

Special Presentation: If a Door Opens – A Journey With Frances Perkins

Join Texas Democratic Women to celebrate Women’s History Month by enjoying a performance of “If a Door Opens – A Journey with Frances Perkins.”

Charlotte Keefe, playwright and actor, will bring to life one of the most important women of the 20th Century: Frances Perkins. If you have never heard of her, she was the first woman cabinet member and Secretary of Labor under FDR for 12 years. She was instrumental in enacting the first minimum wage law, the forty-hour work week, the Social Security Act, unemployment insurance, child labor laws and the National Labor Relations Act. The Department of Labor building in Washington DC is named for her.

In two acts, Keefe takes us through Perkins’ life–via flashbacks to her childhood, education, early work at Hull House in Chicago, social justice work in New York and ultimately to Washington DC with FDR. Her declaration on that move: “I came to Washington to work for God, FDR, and the millions of forgotten, plain, common workingmen.”

Evening performances are scheduled on Friday March 23rd and Saturday the 24th, with an afternoon performance on Sunday March 25th at the Lubbock Community Theatre.  Tickets are available at the door or online at ActBlue: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ifadooropens

A wine and cheese reception and the opportunity to interact with Charlotte Keefe will follow all performances. All proceeds of this fundraiser will benefit the political goals of TDW, which are to increase the participation and influence of Democratic woman in Texas politics and government.


The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed by Jim Bush
April 12-14, 19, 21-22
Change of Venue: LHUCA (Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts) – see map for directions

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot tells the story of a court case over the ultimate Fate of the ultimate back-stabber, Judas Iscariot. Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, The Last Days puts Judas’ case to a hilarious, riotous, piercing trial, the results of which are sure to make the inhabitants of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory (Mother Teresa, Caiaphas, Saint Monica, Sigmund Freud, and Satan) — and the audience — reconsider what each thought they knew about forgiveness, faith, and the human being inside one of the history’s most infamous figures.
“An extraordinary play…not since Angels in America has there been  a play so unafraid to acknowledge the power of the spirit…”
