Loveless Texas is a musical set in Texas oil country during the Great Depression. With echoes of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost it tells the story of two brothers who take very different paths after the untimely death of their parents in an oil rig explosion: King Navarre, the older brother, leaves college to raise his brother and bury himself in the day-to-day operations of the family oil and cattle business, while the younger Berowne escapes to the life of a partying Jazz-age playboy. The hard times and a difficult bargain bring them into conflict, in the course of whose resolution the men learn to make peace with themselves and each other, find the loves of their lives when they least expect it, and discover the importance of making an emotional "home" in the world.
