Welcome to Winters, TX, where three generations of a wacky family have gathered for the funeral of their matriarch, Peggy, an otherwise "fine upstanding woman" who's died under rather sordid circumstances involving a motel room and a pair of wooden legs. By turns both poignant and irreverently hilarious, the play reveals a family at their worst and their best as they come to grips with their grief, their secrets, and each other.

This "black comedy about white trash" penned by Del Shores, author of "Daddy's Dyin'--Who's Got the Will?," "Sordid Lives" received 14 Drama-Logue Awards in its original Los Angeles run, and was adapted into a 2000 motion picture starring Delta Burke, Beau Bridges, and Emmy Winner Leslie Jordan of "Will & Grace," which gained a cult following status, resulting in a subsequent 2008 television series and a just-released film sequel, "A Very Sordid Wedding," now in limited release.

The show will be presented "cabaret-style" in the banquet room of Scrooge's Restaurant, with the action at just arms' length from the audience, who are encouraged to enjoy dinner in the restaurant prior to the show, as well as full beverage service both pre-show and during intermission. A portion of proceeds will benefit the MS Chapter of the Human Rights Campaign.

THIS PLAY CONTAINS PROFANITY AND ADULT THEMES AND IS MEANT FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.  IF YOU'RE EASILY OFFENDED, THIS AIN'T THE SHOW FOR YOU!
