Join Different Roads Home and Theatre Charlotte in this first ever collaboration between the two organizations this October, as they bring to life Sordid Lives, which has been called a “black comedy about white trash.” The story of Bible-thumping Baptists, beer-swilling bar trash and everyone in between in a small Texas town, contrasted with the appearance-driven world of Hollywood and the hysterical comedy and tender poignancy that come from learning to be yourself and to love the family you have instead of the family you want. The original stage play premiered in Los Angeles on May 11, 1996 and ultimately won 14 Drama-Logue Awards. The film met with mixed reviews from mainstream audiences but became a cult classic with LGBT fans, particularly in the South. The movie tells the story of a Texas family coming together in the aftermath of the matriarch’s death.
Film star Ann Walker reprises her original role of LaVonda DuPree, which she originated in the stage play, the movie and the series. Ann brings her colorful take on this cult classic to Charlotte audiences with some of the funniest and most irreverent talent Charlotte has to offer for this comedy. Not recommended for children under 18. In homage to one of the most famous scenes in the movie all seats are $32.09! Get yours today!
See Sordid Lives at McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square, from October 13 to 15.
