Perfect night! Dinner with Louise and John Beard and Ray Jordan! Dinner at the #1 restaurant in USA according to James Beard @highlandsbarandgrill !
At @highlandsbarandgrill just voted James Beard #1 restaurant in US! Louise Beard testing the wine. She’s my amazing producing partner and “Aunt Little Neecy” in #sordidlives. She’s such Birmingham royalty that she accidentally made our reservation at a Highlands restaurant in NYC and the amazing Joseph got us seated in 30 minutes! Amazing food!!!
ATLANTA! I’m coming home to you! Listen up! Gonna be a Very Sordid weekend at @outfronttheatre !!! #sordidlives #delshores #sixcharacters
Yesterday I finished a very rough draft of my new play THIS SIDE OF CRAZY. 4 women. 3 in their 40s ... The Blaylock Sisters, who were child and teen gospel stars (“little superstars for Jesus”) and their mother Ditty Blaylock, in her 70s, the most prolific gospel songwriter in the history of gospel music. I loved writing those last two words THE END. And yes I still write long hand and rewrite on computer! #theatre #delshores #playwright #plays

Taken by Jennifer Vo at tech for my show for Northwestern University! "She took my head in her hands like she did when I was a boy and she wanted to tell me something important -- or just that she loved me." #sixcharacters SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF A PLAY TIX/INFO FOR ALL CITIES: DelShores.com/dates Birmingham - May 17th & 18th (18th is sold out) Atlanta - May 20th Augusta - May 23rd Nashville - May 25th & 26th Knoxville May 27th (3pm & 7pm) San Francisco - June 5th-10th Winston-Salem, NC - June 17th Sonoma, CA - July 22nd Sordid Lives creator Del Shores’ new one-man show, directed by Emerson Collins, proves once and for all that he is not a writer, he’s a self-proclaimed thief! In “Six Characters In Search Of A Play”, riffing on Pirandello’s classic title, Shores brings to life six one-of-a-kind characters he has met in real life that haven’t quite made it into one of his plays, films or TV shows. In 90 minutes, the audience will hear the truth behind how he collected these eccentrics and their stories as he portrays his hilarious, off-the-rails encounters with them. 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 damn 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. BOOKING NOW FOR 2018 This one-man play is a perfect benefit or bonus show for theatres/organizations for one night or more, and it plays best in a theatre or similar environment. There are two ways to partner: a flat fee or a 50/50 gross split of box office. To book and for more details, contact: SixCharacters@icloud.com
