Sparks fly when a couple are reunited 30 years after her father prevented them from getting married. This play received a workshop under the supervision of Edward Albee at the University of Houston.
Son of painter Elbert G. LeVrier, Tommy LeVrier was born and raised in the tiny east Texas town of Daisetta. He completed his Masters in Theatre at Texas State University. His plays have been produced in Los Angeles, New York, Austin, Houston, and Seattle. Two of his plays were produced by playwrights Edward Albee and Lanford Wilson. LeVrier was a finalist in the Nichol Foundation Academy Screenwriter Award, the same panel that judges the Oscars, for his screenplay, “Running High and Looking Good.” LeVrier recently completed a novel about a mythical small
town in the 1960s called “Thirty Five Miles From Beaumont.”
