Del Shores Dishes On ‘Southern Baptist Sissies’ Movie…& More ‘Sordid Lives!’

7 March 2014 1:13 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Sissies Willam Belli, Matthew Scott Montgomery, Luke Stratte McClure & Emerson Collins

Religion and homosexuality have always had a tough relationship and leave it to Del Shores to address the issue head-on in the film version of his renowned play, Southern Baptist Sissies.

Like the play, which has been staged countless times since Shores wrote it in 2000, the film takes a look at four young boys – all Southern Baptists – and their journeys into adulthood and sexuality, with their parents, God and the Church watching closely over them to stop any missteps. While Sissies is filled with great laughs and musical performances, there’s a heavy dramatic message here, too, that unfortunately still applies in 2014.

TheBacklot checked in with Shores to talk about making the film (including Willam Belli’s joining the cast) as well as getting some scoop on his gone-but-not-forgotten series, Sordid Lives, which, we found out, may not be gone after all! »
