Crimes of the Heart

By Beth Henley

November 9-10 and 16-18

The 1981 Pulitzer Prize winning play is a southern gothic comedy centering on the three Magrath sisters, Meg, Babe, and Lenny, who reunite at Old Granddaddy's home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, after Babe shoots her abusive husband. Raised in a dysfunctional family with a penchant for ugly predicaments, each sister has endured her share of hardship and misery. Past resentments bubble to the surface as they're forced to deal with assorted relatives and past relationships while coping with the latest incident that has disrupted their lives. The sisters are forced to face the consequences of the "crimes of the heart" they have committed.
