Crimes of the Heart

If Steel Magnolias taught us anything, its that Southerners tend to deal with tragedy through humor—and the Magrath sisters from Hazelhurst, Mississippi are no different. As the leading ladies of Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Crimes of the Heart, Lenny, Meg and Babe are in need of some strong family support. Babe shot her husband, Meg just had a nervous breakdown, and Lenny’s pet horse got hit by lightning—but when rehashing their tales of woe, you’ll wish you were right there with them, plopped in a seat around their kitchen table, sharing their laughter and lemonade.
