To kick off Red Curtain's 10th Anniversary, we're reviving the first show the group ever produced -- Robert Harlings slice-of-life play about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana.
Set in Truvys Hair Salon, the play opens with discussion of Shelby's wedding day to her fiancé, Jackson, in the fictional northwestern Louisiana parish of Chinquapinthe salon being where the women regularly gather. It covers events over the next three years with Shelby's Type 1 diabetes and how the women interact at times with conflict but in the end resolved friends: Shelby's decision to have a child despite the complication that could result from her condition, Clairee's friendship with the curmudgeon Ouiser; Annelle's transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl then repentant revival-tent Christian; and Truvy's relationships with the men in her family. RATED PG
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., for the three-weekend run September 6-22, 2019.
