GO! – “Shores is a consummate showman, assembling a well-nigh perfect cast, and punctuating the church scenes with sly verbal wit.” —LA Weekly

Description

Writer/Director/Producer Del Shores (Queer as Folk, Sordid Lives, Dharma & Greg), one of Los Angeles’ most prolific playwrights, revives his critically acclaimed play Southern Baptist Sissies.

Shores’ plays are some of the most honored productions in Los Angeles Theater, with over 75 awards, from the LADCC, Ovation, Backstage West Garland, LA Weekly, NAACP and GLAAD. He will again direct the new productions, which are currently being cast. _A Season of Shores will be produced by Del Shores and Jason Dottley (_The Best of Del for Sharyn, An Intimate Evening with Debby Holiday_), with lighting designer Kathi O’Donohue (_Biloxi Blues, After the Fall), musical director Joe Patrick Ward (Composer/Lyricist of _Judy’s Scary Little Christmas _and The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife_), and set designer Robert Steinberg (_Oliver!, A Streetcar Named Desire).

_Southern Baptist Sissies is Shores’ most personal play. It enjoyed a ten-month sold-out run in Los Angeles in 2000 and 2001, and then became a sold-out hit even before opening at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary Theatre in Dallas . Revived in L.A. in April 2002, …Sissies enjoyed yet another six month sold-out run. The play opened at the Bailiwick Theatre in Chicago to rave reviews July 2002 and was the theatre’s biggest hit during their Pride summer series, garnering two After Dark Awards for Best Direction and Best Ensemble.
