By Robert Harling
Directed by Angela Timberman

Set in an in-home beauty parlor owned and operated by the outspoken and wise-cracking Truvy, this modern classic explores the deep bond that forms between a group of outspoken Southern women as they share their triumphs and tragedies with each other.

Filled with sidesplitting reparte—and more than a few sharp but humorous verbal collisions, Steel Magnolias is hilarious and touching and, in the end, reveals a deep emotional truth underlying the witty banter of its eccentrtic characters.
