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.

"Sordid Lives" premiered in Los Angeles on May 11, 1996 and ultimately won 14 DramaLogue Awards. The 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. This 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.

Tickets are $20.00 with a $2.00 discount for seniors, students, servicemen, and Metro riders who present their monthly pass or TAP card when purchasing full price tickets at the box office.
