Celebration, under the artistic direction of Michael Matthews & Michael A. Shepperd in Association with Beard/Collins/Shores Productions, present a very special event, the West Coast premiere of Del Shores first new play since his critically acclaimed Yellow, SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF A PLAY, written and performed by Del Shores and directed by Emerson Collins. SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF A PLAY will preview on Sunday, February 25 at 2pm; will open on Monday, February 26 at 8pm and perform through Sunday, March 25 at Celebration Theatre @ the Lex Theatre, 6760 Lexington Ave. in Los Angeles.

In SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF A PLAY, riffing on Pirandello's classic title, Shores brings to life six one-of-a-kind characters he has met in real life that haven't quite made it into one of his plays, films or TV shows. In 90 minutes, the audience will hear the truth behind how he collected these eccentrics and their stories as he portrays his hilarious, off-the-rails encounters with them.

The audience will meet "Yvonne", the anti-vegetarian Dallas waitress; "Sarah", a Trump-hating elderly actress with an inhaler in one hand and a cigarette in the other; "Jimmy Ray", the evolving, Magic Mike-loving latent Georgia redneck; "Loraine", the once-brilliant drama teacher who has lost her damn mind and is now obsessed with porn; "Marsha", the monkey-hating lesbian with COPD; and "Aunt Bobby Sue", the racist Republican with a heart of gold.

SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF A PLAY will preview on Sunday, February 25 at 7pm; will open on Monday, February 26 at 8pm and perform through Tuesday, March 27 at Celebration Theatre @ the Lex Theatre, 6760 Lexington Ave. in Los Angeles.

Performances are Monday & Tuesday evenings at 8pm. There will be an additional performance on Sunday, March 25 at 7pm and no performance on Monday, March 5 at 8pm.

Ticket Prices are $25. For tickets, please call (323) 957-1884 or visit www.celebrationtheatre.com to purchase tickets online or to view a complete schedule or for further details.
