Eisemann Center for the Performing Arts presents Jaston Williams: I Saw the Lights
Austin favorite Jaston Williams of Greater Tuna fame is back with I Saw the Lights, a new darkly funny solo performance. When mysterious lights appeared over Lubbock, Texas in 1951, people wondered aloud whether they were part of some government plot, an invasion by the Russians or just seeing space aliens out to abduct Francine Whitharrel’s Persian cat.
Viewers will hear from the preacher with too much sense of humor (even for a Methodist), the hippie whose girlfriend longs to become a Comanche, a socialite from Connecticut who holds grudges against trees, and the cowboy with a chronic fear of water. All in all, nine variant souls are drawn together by the inexplicable and are forever bonded through their humanity and humor.
