Mere moments after his arrival in his rural hometown of Grit, Texas with Chris, his laid-back lover, Manhattan hand model Clu Latimore is up to his stylish cut in problems that include caring for his dying mother and her pack of prize-inning Chihuahuas - and, of course, initiating the incredulous Chris into the reality of life in the land of blue bonnets, barbecue and Baptists. But just when Clu's all but ruled out suicide, along comes his former piano teacher and Grit's answer to Brooke Astor, Miss Oveta Canfield. She intends to transform the Espinosa County Livestock Barn into a dinner theatre, and recruits Clu to direct a country-western version of Agamemnon. Before Clu's odyssey is over, there will be a wedding, a birth, a funeral and, of course, a no-holds-barred production of Agamemnon - The Musical.
