Crimes of the Heart
Heartwarming and darkly comic story of three sisters reuniting at the old family home after an abusive husband is shot. "Blending jubilation, mystery, and heartache, this Pulitzer Prize- winning play is a rollicking and touching journey through the heart of the south.
The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is in the hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried; Meg, the middle sister, 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. Their troubles, grave, yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her.
