Crimes of the Heart
November 4-20, 2016
by Beth Henley
Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi sun, the three Magrath sisters are back together in their hometown for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, is the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom, but has, so far, only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. And Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for the attempted murder of her abusive husband. Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize, this play teems with humanity and humor as the sisters’ past resentments bubble to the surface and each must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.”.
