In the uproarious Lone Star Love Potion, the owner of a vast fortune and a two hundred thousand-acre Texas ranch has died. His will refers to the butler, the maid, his niece and the neighbor, Tammy Jo, as well as a formula and a sample of what appears to be a love potion. Can it really work? With the potential to be worth billions to whoever can claim it, everyone is trying to prove it works - with hilarious results. Only in the last 30 seconds of the play is the surprising truth revealed.
