A beautiful, bittersweet comedy set in America’s deep south, Steel Magnolias chronicles the lives and friendships of six women in Chinquapin Parish, Louisiana.
Supporting each other through triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s Beauty Spot, to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children. Despite their differences, beautiful and impulsive Shelby, her strong-willed mother M’Lynn, beauty parlour owner Truvy, elegant widow Clairee, sharp-tongued Ouiser and mousy newcomer Annelle enjoy a friendship that span the boundaries of age and status.
Sharing each others strength and loyalty, these six remarkable women survive the cycles of life, birth and death to emerge stronger, closer and still laughing!
“The funniest play ever to make you cry!”
“Full of life and brimming with laughter, Steel Magnolias is a warm and witty celebration of friendship.”
“A delightful play that hugs the heart.”
