Sordid Lives
The Barn Players are proud to present...

Sordid Lives
By Del Shores

May 31 - June 16
Directed by Sara Crow

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 thirty 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. We become intimate with the "sordid lives" of a family in a small Texas town preparing for the funeral of the mother. Among the characters are the grandson trying to find his identity in West Hollywood, the son who has spent the past twenty-three years dressed as Tammy Wynette, the sister and her best friend (who live in delightfully kitschy homes), and the two daughters (one strait-laced and one quite a bit looser).
