Willie Mae Beaudreaux, one of the very first black females to serve in the Texas Rangers, is literally on the last day of her distinguished career — at a retirement party, in fact — when she solves a cold case that’s long been a titanic source of distress and angst for her. One of the folks that anchor it: Paris Beaudreaux, Willie Mae’s troubled twin brother. The two haven’t spoken in years. There are reasons. The drama unfolds and the fictional characters confront longstanding discords during a staged reading of Eugene Lee’s Lyin’ Ass. Directed by Kelvin L. Hamilton, the play also centers on an elderly-ish shut-in and his free-spirited daughter that he thinks he knows, but really doesn’t know. The shindig is part of The Ensemble Theatre’s Salute to Texas Playwrights Stage Readings series, which has previously presented readings of Morning, Noon and Night and The ‘N’ Word Catharsis.

6 p.m. Monday. 3535 Main. For information, call 713-520-0055 or visit ensemblehouston.org. $5.
