ODESSA - It's a dramatic play that's been brought back by popular demand.

"The Last Ball" was written by a West Texan and first put on by the Globe Theatre nearly 10 years ago.

The play is about a family coping with tough decisions about responsibility and honor in light of the civil war.

Of course, there's a grand dance with all of the period costumes.

One of the actor's from the original play is directing the revamped version.

He says he'll be using popular stories from the fall of Rome to parallel the tragedy in this play.

"If you've got tragedy going on in your own life, come spend two hours with us and forget about your personal tragedy or if you're worried about things going on in Darfur or around the world. With everything that's happening right now and you want to forget about everything else, come spend two hours with us and live this tragedy," Director, Jonathon Horne, said.

The final shows will be held next weekend.
