Texas humorist Jaston Williams — one-third of the performers behind classic comedy Greater Tuna —
has returned with a new one-man show, I Saw the Lights
, which will stream online on Friday, January 29.
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.
