SORDID LIVES' Creator Del Shores to Perform at Art House 8/6-9

Writer, director, producer Del Shores may be best known for creating the Theater, Film and Television versions of the cult classic "Sordid Lives," which became Logo TV's biggest hit show - starring Olivia Newton John, Rue McClanahan, Caroline Rhea, Leslie Jordan and Bonnie Bedelia. On August 6 through 9th, his own one-man show Sordid Confessions will make its Provincetown premiere. For tickets please visit or call 508-487-9222 for information.

Del Shores first gained fame for writing the award-winning 1987 play "Daddy's Dyin' (Who's Got The Will?)," which ran for two years at Theatre/Theater in Hollywood. The play went on to be produced in over 2,500 theaters worldwide and was released as a film in 1990 with Shores as writer and executive producer, and starring Beau Bridges, Keith Carradine and Beverly D'Angelo. On the opening of his smash-hit fourth play, "Sordid Lives," the Los Angeles Times called Shores "a master of the Texas comedy," as the play went on to run for over a year and win 14 Drama-Logue Theatre Awards. The 1999 film version of the play, written and directed by Shores and starring Olivia Newton-John, Delta Burke, Beau Bridges, Bonnie Bedelia and Leslie Jordan, won numerous film festival awards across the country including the New York Independent Film & Video Festival's Best Film Award and is now available on video.

His other recent work includes the award winning "Southern Baptist Sissies," in 2000, and 2003's LA Drama Critic's Circle Award Winner "The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife," which will be released as a film in 2012. Frequent star of his plays Caroline Rhea explains Shore's success simply: "Del says what most people think. He has no censor - on or offstage. Audiences love him because of his ‘bless-their-hearts' Texas Charm. In his own words, Shores describes "Sordid Confessions," which he is bringing to The Art House in Provincetown this summer, even more succinctly: "Look, I'm off Paxil, I'm bitter, a little mean and I don't give a shit anymore."
