Based on an honest-to-god, true-to-life, ripped-from-the-Texas-headlines story, White Lightning In My Heart is a black comedy about guilt, redemption, sex and electricity. Scott Louis Beausoleil is a delusional vagrant who has been hauled into a corrupt and hostile Texas County Courthouse to defend himself for a crime he cannot comprehend. He feels a sense of foreboding, a sense that he has committed a crime that only God can know or understand. In the process of proving his innocence he discovers the true nature of his guilt. If Franz Kfaka had written a movie for the Coen Brothers it might be this play.
