WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Magrath sisters, Lenny, Meg, and Babe, are reunited at their family home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, after Babe shoots her husband. Each one is facing down her own demons, past and present. Lenny cares for the grandfather who raised her as he dies, Meg grapples with dreams that didn't come true, and Babe squares off against an abusive spouse. It's a portrait of a dysfunctional family, but Beth Henley's Pulitzer Prize-winning play finds laughter within tragedy.
