Eureka Springs Summer Diversity Weekend

Come out to Eureka Springs, August 3rd through 5th for the biggest Summer Diversity Weekend ever!

The highlight of the weekend is a special one night engagement of “Sordid Lives” creator Del Shores’  new one-man show, “Six Characters in Search of a Play”.

For this hilarious and provocative piece, Shores riffs on Pirandello’s classic play to bring audiences six characters inspired by his real-life encounters that haven’t quite made it into one of Shores’ plays, films or TV shows.  In 90 minutes, the audience will hear the truth behind how he collected these eccentrics, then he will portray them in classic Shores’ monologue style.

 “Six Characters in Search of a Play ” is on Friday, August 3, 2018, at 8 p.m. at The Auditorium.  Tickets range from $25-$40.  To purchase tickets, please click here.  Please note:  this performance contains adult language.
