Voices of the South, a theatre company devoted to the creation of original theatre from diverse Southern perspectives is thrilled to present “An Evening with Del Shores: My Sordid Best!”. Join our own Heavenly Hostess, Sister Myotis, as she welcomes her new friend, Del Shores, the unabashed creator of “Sordid Lives” and “Southern Baptist Sissies”, to Memphis for the first time! And she has also convinced him to meet her at church - for the first time since his teenage years (growing up as the son of a Southern Baptist preacher)! And it took Sister Myotis to do it! Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the “Greatest Hits” of Del's sordid life; Celebrity Encounters! Movie Making! Growing up Gay in the South! And much more! Please join us for this very special evening and help us raise much needed operating funds for Voices of the South!

Del Shores is most well known for his plays “Sordid Lives” and “Southern Baptists Sissies”, which were inspired by his own experiences growing up as a gay man in the South. In 1999, Shores wrote and directed the film version of “Sordid Lives” starring Beau Bridges, Delta Burke, Olivia Newton-John, Bonnie Bedelia, Leslie Jordan and Beth Grant.  His play “Southern Baptist Sissies” followed, and won the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Production of the Year. In 2003, “The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife” won two NAACP Awards, an LA Stage Alliance Ovation and three LA Weekly Awards. “Sordid Lives: The Series” premiered on Viacom’s LOGO network in 2008 starring Olivia Newton-John, Rue McClanahan, Leslie Jordan, Beth Grant and Caroline Rhea. Shores has written and produced in television including “Dharma and Greg” and “Queer as Folk”.
