In this cult classic, a colorful family from a small Texas town must come to grips with the accidental death of the elderly family matriarch during a clandestine meeting in a seedy motel. The woman’s family must deal with their own demons while preparing for what could be an embarrassing funeral.

This comedy is so fantastical it just could be true, if you know the South. The play is set in a small Texas town just after the death of Peggy, a grandmother who, during a tryst in a seedy motel room, trips over her lover G.W.'s wooden legs in the dark and suffers a fatal head wound. The aftermath finds Peggy's family trying to cover up the sordid details of her demise and G.W.'s wife seeking revenge on her cheating husband.

Peggy's daughter, Latrelle Williams (played by Susan Smith) is a determinedly proper Texan in denial over the fact that her son, Ty, a soap-opera star (played by Jason Syverson) might be gay. Her only brother, "Brother Boy" (played by Jim Rux) has been confined to a mental institution for — among other things — being a dedicated Tammy Wynette-obsessed transvestite. And now the whole town is talking about the bizarre accidental death of her mother during a clandestine meeting with her much younger married neighbor, G.W. Nethercott (played by Mike Brown). To make matters worse, her sister, LaVonda (played by Tricia Allen), wants to bury Momma in a mink stole in the middle of summer.

Rounding out the "Sordid" cast are Cindy Mattingly as Bitsy Mae Harling, the guitar-playing, ex-con singer; Lana Price as Sissy Hickey, a caretaker/sister who picked the wrong day to quit smoking; Elizabeth Adams as Noleta Nethercott, the angry, betrayed housewife; Jordan Zanzoucchi as Wardell Owens, the former gay-bashing, remorseful bartender; Josh Simpson as Odell Owens, Wardell's worthless, story-telling brother; Jennifer Noll as Dr. Eve Bolinger, the oversexed, pill-popping, alcoholic therapist; Josh Simpson as the Rev. Barnes, a Southern Baptist preacher; Michelle Kersch as the bar fly neighbor, Juanita, Marie Ballantyne as Peggy, the Nympho deceased grandmother, and Genie Talbert, as trailer trash/ bar fly.

Other production staff and crew include Lori Grove - Producer / Assistant Director, and Rachel Thone - Stage Manager.

The show runs September 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, and October 1, with curtain on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30pm and the Sunday matinee at 2:00pm each weekend.
