Southern Baptist Sissies is a play written by Del Shores, the creator of Sordid Lives. It is the story of four gay boys who grew up in the Southern Baptist church and the different journey each one takes in coming to terms with their own homosexuality versus what they were taught by the church. Mark becomes a writer, questioning everything. Benny embraces who he is and becomes a drag queen entertainer. T.J. attempts to live as the church tells him to and tries to be straight. Andrew, the most troubled sissy of all, believes the message that there is something truly wrong with who he is and he takes his own life.
Some familiar faces who will be on stage are Leslie Jordan from Will & Grace; Ann Walker from Sordid Lives and Willam Belli from RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Southern Baptist Sissies received rave reviews in Los Angeles during its original run in 2000 and became the most awarded play of the year, winning the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding LA Theater Production, as well as multiple LA Weekly Theater Awards, Los Angeles Critics' Awards, Ovation Awards, Backstage West Garland Awards and Robby Awards.
These four performances will be filmed to create the film version of the play. These four shows, with extremely limited seating, are your opportunity to be a part of the actual final film - and to be there as we create it!
The play stars Emerson Collins, Willam Belli, Matthew Scott Montgomery, Luke Stratte-McClure, Newell Alexander, Rosemary Alexander, Bobbie Eakes, Ann Walker, Joe Patrick Ward, Johna Myers, T. Ashanti Mozelle, Anthony Cherry with Dale Dickey and Leslie Jordan
