Get ready for another taste of Sordid Lives. Creator of the play turned film about a colorful family from a small Texas Town which spawned a prequel series and a sequel film, Del Shores announced on the morning of Saturday, May 16, a live stream benefit play reading of his play, Sordid Lives with a mixture of the original casts from the film and the television series.

“I can trace every dime, every bit of success back to the theatre,” Shores said. “When I heard how many theatres were struggling that have supported my work, I had to do something. I reached out to my Sordid family and they all came together. I’m excited that we are ‘off and runnin’’ having raised already 2K in less than a day.”
The Sordid Lives #SordidLiveStream will be streamed on YouTube and Facebook on Sunday, May 31 at 5 PM PT/ 8 PM ET.
