Adapted from the novel by Judith Guest
(1980 film adaptation won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture)

Conrad Jarrett had an older brother named Buck, and now Buck is gone. What's left of young Conrad's family, with his successful, well-intentioned father and his beautiful, organized and remote mother, is in terrible jeopardy, as is Conrad himself. They are all "ordinary people" and each is fighting a hard battle.

"The anxiety, despair and joy that is common to every human experience … if Conrad and his family are ordinary people, why then so are we all."
— The New York Times

Sordid Lives
by Del Shores
May 23-Jun 8, 2014

 

Winner! 14 DramaLogue awards including Best Production

A black comedy about white trash! The author of Daddy's Dyin' (Who's Got the Will?) brings you a comedy that was nominated for over thirty awards during its long run in Los Angeles.

When Peggy, a good Christian woman, hits her head on the sink and bleeds to death after tripping over her lover's wooden legs in a motel room, chaos erupts in Winters, Texas.

"[This play by] the master of Texas Comedy...is maybe funnier than Daddy's Dyin'. His colorful eccentrics are dead on, teetering on a Bowie knife's edge between the hilarious improbable and the achingly real."
— The Los Angeles Times

"Run, don't walk to Del Shores new play!"
— DramaLogue

"Pick of the Week."
— L.A. Weekly

Next season's schedule is now being finalized and will be announced soon.

Stay tuned!

 

Patron Testimonial

"We absolutely LOVED the show ... it was a delight, perfectly cast, costumed so well that additional sets were not needed, could have been an off Broadway production right here in K-ville. When I was in NYC in Dec., I saw 3 off Broadway shows which made me appreciate TKD even more ... including the venue! When I tell people that TKD is as good as NYC, I know what I am talking about!"
- L. Denton, Knoxville
