Sordid Lives: A black comedy about white trash… OUTwright’s five-year anniversary’s feature production of Sordid Lives takes us back to a point in our history when gay conversion therapy was considered by many to be a justifiable response to homosexuality. As we head into yet another new America, this story is as timely as ever. In this sidesplitting comedy, the audience endures Brother Boy’s detention in a Texas mental health facility, his impassioned battles with psychiatrists and family members, and his eventual and triumphant escape at the hands of the only man he has ever truly loved. Del Shores hysterically renders this nuanced discussion with just the right amount of sugar to make the medicine go down. Just try not to spit it back up while you are laughing your tushie off.
