Six Characters in Search of a Play
June 6-10, 2018
By Del Shores
Limited engagement of one-man show from the creator of Sordid Lives and Southern Baptist Sissies.
The creator of cult-classic Sordid Lives and writer/director/producer of Southern Baptist Sissies, Blues for Willadean and Queer as Folk is back at NCTC for a limited engagement with his new one-man show, Six Characters in Search of a Play. This one-man show is filled with six one-of-a-kind characters Del Shores met in real life, that haven’t quite made it into any of his other plays, films, or TV shows. Over the course of 90 minutes, the audience will meet “Yvonne” the anti-vegetarian Dallas waitress; “Sarah”, a Trump-hating elderly actress with an inhaler in one-hand and a cigarette in the other; “Jimmy Ray”, the evolving, Magic Mike-loving latent Georgia redneck; “Loraine”, the once brilliant drama teacher who has lost her mind and is now obsessed with porn; “Marsha”, the monkey-hating lesbian with COPD; and “Aunt Bobby Sue”, the racist Republican with a heart of gold.
Written and performed by Del Shores
Directed by Emerson Collins
Playing Wednesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm and 8pm, and Sunday at 2pm and 7pm.
