Sordid Lives, Kelsey Theater

Friday February 17, 2023
8:00 PM

MTM Players is proud to present the ridiculously funny comedy "Sordid Lives." The play runs weekends February 17 - 26, 2023 at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre located on the college's West Windsor campus on 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Penned by Del Shores, the play is set in the small town of Winters, Texas where a large family tries to come to grips with the death of their matriarch, Peggy. Her family puts the "fun" in "dysfunctional family" as they converge on this small town, causing skeletons to shake loose from the closet. Riotous feuding ensues, followed by the hilarity of resentment, remorse and reconciliation.

Tickets are $20 for children, students and senior citizens, and $22 for adults. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333.
