Blues for Willadean is the film adaptation of Del Shores’ 2003 play “The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife.” It explores the hidden emotions, shame, and secrecy of battered women, while also offering hope, healing and truth. A delicate blend of frightened humor and pain, the three act play delves right into the heart of abuse. From the hysterical highs of side-splitting comedy Shores is known for, to the heart-rending depths of drama at its most human, the story sweeps the emotional spectrum. Shores draws the audience into the fire, allowing them to laugh one minute and cry the next as they experience the emotions revealed from all sides – the abuser, the abused, and the powerless bystander.
