Proud Mary Theatre Company’s Sordid Lives, the Southern cult comedy play by Del Shores, runs August 12-21, Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m and Saturdays at 2 p.m. at the Artists Collective Spartanburg.
In this beloved play, a colorful family from a small Texas town must come to grips with the accidental death of the elderly family matriarch during a clandestine meeting in a seedy motel room with her much younger, married neighbor. The woman’s family must deal with their own demons while preparing for what could be an embarrassing funeral.
SEATING IS VERY LIMITED DUE TO REDUCED SEATING CAPACITY.
