WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — “Sordid Lives,” a Del Shores’ comedy, will be held at Theatre Alliance, 1047 Northwest Blvd., from Nov. 30-Dec 9.

Produced with the support of a $3,000 grant provided by the Adam Foundation, this popular stage presentation tells the story of Peggy, a “good Christian woman, who hits her head on the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover’s wooden leg in a motel room in Winters, Texas. It’s a bit chaotic and filled with a great deal of irreverence.

Performances are at 8 p.m. on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 5, 6, 8, 9 and at 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 and 9.

Tickets are $12, senior/student and $14, adult on opening night and $14/senior/student and $16, adult for the rest of the run and may be purchased online at
