Proud Mary Theatre Company will present SORDID LIVES, the classic cult comedy by Del Shores, August 12-21 as their first indoor performance in 18 months.
Shows are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. with two Saturday matinees at the Artists Collective Spartanburg. MASK ARE REQUIRED! SEATING IS VERY LIMITED DUE TO COVID and reduced seating capacity, so reserve your tickets today.
In this beloved cult classic 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.
