MTM Players presents the comedy Sordid Lives at Kelsey Theatre on the campus of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor on weekends, February 17–26.

Written by Del Shores, the play is set in the small town of Winters, Texas, where a large family arrives and tries to come to grips with the death of their matriarch, Peggy. Their arrival in the small town causes all sorts of comedic chaos. Sordid Lives is Shores’ fourth play. It won several awards, and was adapted into a successful film.

Performances are Friday and Saturday, February 17 and 18, 24 and 25 at 8 p.m.; and February 19 and 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20-$22. Visit KelseyTheatre.org or call (609) 570-3333.
