Sordid Lives Brings Del Shores To RB
The Clear Space Theatre Company of Rehoboth Beach has announced that author Del Shores—creator of their summer hit, Sordid Lives and frequently called “the grand master of Southern lowlife sensibilities”—will be appearing at the theatre Friday, September 5 and Saturday, September 6. Mr. Shores’ appearance is sponsored by Atlantic Sands Hotel and Conference Center.
Friday evening the production of Sordid Lives will feature a pre-show reception with hors d’oeuvres catered by Hobo’s, complimentary wine and beer, champagne and desserts at intermission, and a question and answer session after the show. Tickets for the Friday performance of Sordid Lives, including the reception, are $50. Saturday evening, Mr. Shores will present his one-man show My Sordid Best at 10 p.m. following that evening’s performance of Sordid Lives. “The censors will be absent, the language will be crude, the stories will be raw, and if you are offended, that's your choice!” Del warns. Separate tickets are required for the show and post-show. Tickets for Mr. Shores’ special Saturday evening presentation of My Sordid Best are $25.
The Clear Space Theatre is located at 20 Baltimore Avenue in Rehoboth Beach. All tickets are available through the Clear Space box office at 302-227-2270 or online at ClearSpaceTheatre.org.
