Robert Harling wrote this modern classic after the tragic death of his diabetic sister.
Set in a small town beauty parlour, where all the ladies who are 'anybody' come to have their hair done, the play is hilarious and touching.
The Steel Magnolias are six Southern women who talk, gab, gossip, chitchat, needle and harange each other through the best of times -- and cry, caress, comfort and repair each other through the worst.
Our May 2008 production was directed by Phyllis Ross
The action takes place in Truvy's Beauty Shop in Chinquapin, Louisiana.
