Theatre Oxford will present Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley on August 25th, 26th and 27th at 7:30 pm and on August 28th at 2 pm. |
Crimes of the Heart, the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Beth Henley, opens the 2016-17 season of Theatre Oxford.
The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.
"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."
Tickets for students, seniors, and Theatre Oxford members are $15.
Tickets for non-members are $20.
