In preparation for the upcoming flu season and in conjunction with the Department of Health*, Lubbock Community Theatre is offering the best medicine: laughter.**
Join us on Saturday, January 7 at 8:00 p.m. for a night of cheap laughs (only $10!).
DISCLAIMER: due to language and mature themes, Lubbock Community Theatre’s “Laughter After Dark” will range from not offensive at all to horribly offensive. (What can we say? One man’s humor is another man’s not-humor.)
Stay tuned for more information on guests!
*Lubbock Community Theatre is not actually working with the Department of Health.
**Laughter will not actually treat the flu. If you have the flu, don’t come within a 100 million yards of the theatre.
Tickets are available for online purchase only. Tickets will be available at the box office the night of event, providing they are not sold out prior to the event.

Written by Lorraine Hansberry
Set on Chicago’s South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis and matriarch Lena. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans, however: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. Sacrifice, trust and love among the Younger family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
Winner of multiple Tony Awards in the original 1960 production, as well as the 2004 and 2014 revivals
