Auditions Sordid Lives


Sordid Lives by Del Shores is billed as a ‘a black comedy about white trash,’ and has great roles for a wide range of actors.  The story starts when Peggy, a good Christian woman, hits her head o the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover’s wooden legs in a motel room.  It leads to chaos erupting in Winter Texas!

To request a copy of the script or if you have any questions please contact the Directer Patrick Cleary at be .
