Photo Coverage: Kentwood Players Welcome Del Shores and Original SORDID LIVES Cast Members to Their Show

Kentwood Players presents SORDID LIVES by Del Shores from July 11 to August 16, 2014 for a six-week run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm with Sunday matinees at 2pm at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue, Westchester, CA 90045. The production is directed by Kirk Larson and produced by Lori Marple-Pereslete and Virginia Mekkelson by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

On Sunday, July 20, the Kentwood Players performance of SORDID LIVES had 4 very special guests in the audience: playwright Del Shores and original cast members Ann Walker (LaVonda), Newell Alexander (Wardell) and Rosemary Alexander (Dr. Eve Bolinger). After enjoying the show, they visited with the Kentwood Players cast and posed for photos on the set.

Del Shores was born in Winters, Texas, the town in which his play SORDID LIVES takes place. It premiered in Los Angeles on May 11, 1996 and ultimately won 14 DramaLogue Awards. Shores' black comedy about white trash centers on a colorful family from a small Texas town who must come to grips with the accidental death of the elderly family matriarch during her clandestine meeting in a seedy motel room with a much younger, married neighbor. The woman's family must deal with their own demons while preparing for what could be an embarrassing funeral. In typical Shores style, the play is filled with adult situations and language..

Featured in the cast are Greg Abbott, Samantha Barrios, Elizabeth A. Bouton, Harold Dershimer, Kip Hogan, Alison Mattiza, Eduardo Mora, Cherry Norris, Eddie "Ed" O'Brien, Dave Parke, Catherine Rahm, Michael Sandidge, and Susan Stangl.
