Home > Upcoming Shows > Crimes of the Heart

In Hazlehurst, Mississippi, three sisters gather to await news of their grandfather’s impending death. Lenny, the eldest, 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. Their troubles are hilariously highlighted by their cousin, Chick, and the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail.
(For ages 13 and up)
