- Brenda Ladd
The darkly comedic performance centers on the residents of Lubbock, Texas, in 1951 as they investigate mysterious lights in the sky, which they think may be a secret government plot, a Russian invasion or even aliens looking to abduct the neighborhood Persian cat.
Among the cast of characters — all portrayed by Williams — are a humorous preacher, a hippie whose girlfriend wants to become a Comanche, a Connecticut socialite who's scared of trees and a cowboy with a chronic fear of water.
$25-$35, 7 p.m. Friday, January 29, tickets.austintheatre.org/6333.
