The show airing October 2, 2017 – October 9, 2017 ‘highlights’ A Very Sordid Wedding & FestivALL Fall.
We talked with Anthony Jarrell and Chris Gosses about the upcoming preview of the popular TV series and now movie, A Very Sordid Wedding.
A Very Sordid Wedding explores the questions, bigotry and the fallout of what happens when gay marriage comes to communities and families that are not quite ready to accept it. Bigoted “religious freedom,” marriage equality and cultural acceptance are all explored with Del Shores’ trademark approach to using comedy and his much-beloved Sordid Lives characters to deal with these important current social issues and the very real process of accepting your family for who they are instead of who you want them to be.
The movie will be shown at the WVSU Capitol Theater at 123 Summers Street in Charleston WV beginning at 6:30 p.m. on October 12, 2017.
Tickets are $15.00.
The show is brought to you be Salon ICON and Rainbow Pride of WV.
