Crimes of the Heart

By Beth Henley

Directed by James J. Gallagher

This Pulitzer Prize winning play is an irreverent, warm-hearted portrayal of three very different sisters trying to make sense of their lives while reunited at Old Grandaddy's home in Mississippi. Raised in a dysfunctional family with a penchant for ugly predicaments, each has endured her share of hardship and misery. The trios' reunion triggers a hilarious mix of conflicts, crises and revelations. This story of a family's troubles is true to life in that levity and tragedy live side by side. In the end, each sister is forced to face the consequences of the "crimes of the heart" she has committed and they learn to greet the tragic, absurd twists of fate with courage, love and the ultimate saving grace of laughter.
