THEATER | "Sordid Lives" 

As part of Pride Week, Black Sheep Theatre will present the first Rochester performance of Del Shores' award-winning comedy "Sordid Lives." Beginning with the death of Peggy, a good Christian lady who dies tripping over the wooden legs of her lover, "Sordid Lives" goes on to explore the secret lives of her family in the quiet town of Winters, Texas. Adapted into a 2000 film starring Olivia Newton-John, "Sordid Lives" instantly became a cult classic in the LGBTQ community, later adapted into a short-lived 2008 television series. This adaptation of "Sordid Lives" is directed by Charlie Cooper and Kristy Angevine-Funderburk.

"Sordid Lives" runs Thursday, July 16, through Saturday, July 18, and again Friday, July 24, through Sunday, July 26, at Black Sheep Theatre (274 North Goodman Street). Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $16 advance, $20 at the door. For more information, visit blacksheeptheatre.org.
