This Side of Crazy

Sept 20 - Oct 20, 2019

Written and Directed By Del Shores

World Premiere

“Little superstars for Jesus,” the Blaylock Sisters, are all grown up and kind of a mess. There’s Rachel, a Christian vlogger who still has sex with her comatose husband, Abigail, a chain-smoking virgin with anger management issues, and Bethany, a closeted atheist stripper. When their overbearing stage mother, Ditty, “volunteers” her daughters for a star-studded reunion performance, all hell breaks loose. From the brilliant and hilarious mind of Sordid Lives creator, Del Shores, comes a brand new comedy about fame, family, and finding your way back home.
