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 30 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.
Sordid Lives was originally produced by Del Shores in association with Jeff Murray and Nicolette Chaffey for Theatre/Theater in Hollywood, California on May 11, 1996. The production was directed by Del Shores.
“[This play by] the master of Texas Comedy… is maybe funnier than Daddy’s Dyin’. His colorful eccentric’s are dead on, teetering on a Bowie knife’s edge between the hilarious improbable and the achingly real.” – The Los Angeles Times
