Sordid Lives creator Del Shores’ one-man show proves once and for all that he is not a writer, he’s a self-proclaimed thief! Riffing on Pirandello’s classic title, Shores brings to life six one-of-a-kind characters he has met in real life that haven’t quite made it into one of his plays, films or TV shows. Shores presents the truth behind how he collected these eccentrics and their stories as he portrays his hilarious, off-the-rails encounters with them. He reenacts his encounters with an anti-vegetarian waitress, a Trump-hating elderly actress with an inhaler in one hand and a cigarette in the other, a Magic Mike-loving latent redneck, a once-brilliant drama teacher who is now obsessed with porn, a monkey-hating lesbian with COPD, and a racist Republican with a heart of gold. Shores brings the same incisive comedy and surprising poignancy to these stories that have made beloved cult classics of his films from Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s Got The Will? to Southern Baptist Sissies to A Very Sordid Wedding.
