CRIMES OF THE HEART
This play has won the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. An astonishing first play, it established the author as a major voice in our theatre. Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, the play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions.
"It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in the theatre not to see this play." NY Post.
"From time to time a play comes along that restores one's faith in our theatre" NY Magazine
THE THEATER: BETH HENLEY'S 'CRIMES OF THE HEART'
By FRANK RICH
BETH HENLEY'S ''Crimes of the Heart'' ends with its three heroines - the Magrath sisters of Hazelhurst, Miss. -helping themselves to brick-sized hunks of a chocolate birthday cake. The cake, a ''super deluxe'' extravaganza from the local bakery, is as big as the kitchen table, and the sisters laugh their heads off as they dig in. The scene is the perfect capper for an evening of antic laughter - yet it's by no means the sum of ''Crimes of the Heart.'' While this play overflows with infectious high spirits, it is also, unmistakably, the tale of a very troubled family. Such is Miss Henley's prodigious talent that she can serve us pain as though it were a piece of cake.
