Sordid Lives by Del Shores

Comedy / 6m, 6f

Winner! 14 DramaLogue awards including Best Production.

A black comedy about white trash! The author of Daddy's Dyin' (Who's Got the Will?) brings you a comedy that was nominated for over thirty awards during its long run in Los Angeles. When Peggy, a good Christian woman, hits her head on the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover's wooden legs in a motel room, chaos erupts in Winters, Texas.


"[This play by] the master of Texas Comedy ... is maybe funnier than Daddy's Dyin'. His colorful eccentrics are dead on, teetering on a Bowie knife's edge between the hilarious improbable and the achingly real." -L.A. Times


"Run, don't walk to Del Shores new play!" -DramaLogue


"Pick of the Week." -L.A. Weekly
