Turning the tables on the venerable “Christmas in July” tradition, Southern Lights slips in a bluesy, Texas-in-July tale of true love gone bad, success, and betrayal in this all new revival from playwright Lee Brady set in a down home bar and told through the lens of country music—complete with the humor, real pathos and sentimentality the genre is known for.
3Girls Theatre Company turns Z Below in the Mission into an intimate down-home east Texas bar to tell a bluesy tale of country music, true love, success and betrayal in a brand new revival of Southern Lights, first produced by Theater Artists of Marin in 1993.
Written by Lee Brady, directed by Andrea Gordon with musical direction by Robert Beifus, the play tells the story of Callie Calendar and Lonn McGee, the daughter and adopted son respectively of country music legend, Cash Callendar, when Callie and Lonn’s passionate teenage love affair was shattered by a very public tragedy. Asked about the inspiration for Cash, playwright Brady says, “He’s a combination of the classic male country music legend— think Jimmie Davis, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard.”
