East Texas Hot Links: Both a riveting mystery and a compelling character study reminiscent of The Twilight Zone.
True Colors Theatre Company’s East Texas Hot Links – a thriller play written and directed by Eugene Lee – is on stage now at the Southwest Cultural Arts Center.
Greed, corruption and Jim Crow intertwine in the tense thriller East Texas Hot Links. It’s 1955 in the piney woods of East Texas, and Charlesetta’s Top O’ the Hill Cafe is one of the only public places where black locals can gather for comfort, solace, and companionship. In a community dominated by the Ku Klux Klan, young black men have begun disappearing and turning up dead. On one hot summer night, the patrons of the Top O’ the Hill must join forces to protect one of their own. When danger comes knocking, the unthinkable happens, with dire consequences for all involved.
