Set in Austin on the eve of Prohibition, this production from Texas Comedies (aka Crank Collective) retells the true story of the battle between the "Drys" and the "Wets." When a forbidden love between two families begins to brew, World War I, the Klan and the Anti-Saloon League stand in their way. The show is a one-hour musical comedy with a live band.
The newest addition to the Texas History Musicals series, following Murders & Moontowers, The True Story of Bonnie and Clyde, and Boomtown, Prohibition created by John Cecil and Texas Comediesexplores the true story of the battle in Central Texas over the prohibition of alcohol. This epic struggle dragged in Temperancers, Suffragettes, Doughboys, German-Americans, brewers and poll fixers, and culminated in an era of increased criminality and vice.
