‘Sordid Lives’ at Murfreesboro Center for the Arts, April 11–27

 

This is an outrageous “black comedy about white trash”.Murfreesboro Center for the Arts

The ensemble cast of Sordid Lives puts a comedic twist on a story of unconditional love, acceptance and “coming out” in a Texas family, as they all converge for the matriarch’s funeral. The eccentric characters include: a mother who is wound too tight and in denial over her gay son, a barfly/singer at the local watering hole, a cheating heart whose wooden legs accidentally aid in the death of his mistress, Peggy, a good Christian woman (and the family matriarch), in a motel room, and a dozen others too unbelievable to mention. Chaos erupts in Winters, Texas, when the cheating heart’s wife tries her hand at revenge therapy inspired by “Thelma & Louise” along with her best friend. Their lives intertwine, giving each a new perspective, honesty and meaning.

FOR ADULTS ONLY. Mature subject matter and language.
