Come and audition for one of the best comedic plays of our time: Sordid Lives!
A black comedy about white trash! The author of Daddy’s Dyin’ (Who’s Got the Will?) and Southern Baptist Sissies brings you a comedy that was nominated for over thirty awards during its long run in Los Angeles. When Peggy, a good Christian woman, hits her head on the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover’s wooden legs in a motel room, chaos erupts in Winters, Texas.
Characters of the show:
BITSY MAE HARLING. the guitar playing ex-con singer.
TY WILLIAMSON. 27, a beautiful gay man on a joumey.
SISSY HICKEY. mid 50s, the caretaker who picked the wrong day to quit smoking.
NOLETA NETHERCOTT. early 40s the angry overweight betrayed housewife.
LATRELLE WILLIAMSON. early 50s, Ty’s uptight, proper mother.
LA VONDA DUPREE. late 40s, Latrelle’s liberal-minded worldly sister.
G.W. NETERCOTT. late 40s, the distraught legless Vietnam Vet.
WARDELL “BUBBA” OWENS. late 40s, the former gay-bashing remorseful bartender.
ODELL OWENS. mid 40s, Wardell’s worthless story-telling brother.
DR. EVE BOLINGER. late 40s, the over-sexed pill-popping, alchoholic therapist.
EARL “BROTHER BOY” INGRAM. late 40s, the Tammy Wynette obsessed transvestite.
REV. BARNES. the Southern Baptist preacher. (Author’s suggestion is to double cast with the actor who plays ODELL.)
