Del Shores is best known for his 2001 cult-classic film turned
TV series Sordid Lives. Shores’ other works include his GLAAD award-winning play Southern Baptist Sissies; Ovation & Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle award-winning play turned film The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife which debuts in movie theatres in 2012; MGM’s 1990 classic Daddy’s Dyin’ (Who’s Got The Will?); and his 2010 hit play Yellow which won the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award in 2011 for Best Production of the Year.
With Del Shores: My Sordid Life, he turns the table sharing real-life stories that have inspired his writing-and more! Yes, there was a man with two wooden legs, but did his grandmother trip over them and die while having a sordid affair? Did his mother really ask, “What exactly do you do… when you’re gay?” (Sordid Lives) Were prayers really answered and a matching vein found in a vein bank in Baton Rouge to replace his Uncle Humpty’s collapsed one? (Southern Baptist Sissies) What relative really shot a policeman in the “saliva gland” and shoulder (Trailer Trash Housewife)? What was his aunt’s reaction to seeing herself as the multi-married bar-singer Evalita in Daddy’s Dyin?
Truth and fiction are finally separated and the result is absolute, side-splitting hilarity!
