Crimes of the Heart

Sept. 8–25, 2016

by Beth Henley / Winner of 1981 Pulitzer Prize and NY Drama Critics Circle Award!

In this deeply touching Southern Gothic comedy, three young sisters reunite in their Mississippi hometown to await news of their hospitalized grandfather -- and that's just the start of their very strange, very bad day. With emotional troubles in the past and immediate troubles with the law, each of the quirky, dysfunctional Magrath sisters is forced to face the consequences of her crimes of the heart. Imaginative and hilarious, unpredictable and moving, this very funny play about very serious matters is a contemporary classic!
