Written as a tribute to the playwright’s sister, Steel Magnolias is a heartfelt look at the strength of spirit that lies beneath the beautiful veneer of the ostensibly fragile Southern belle.
The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in a small town in Louisiana where six very different women gather to share gossip, laughter, friendship and heartache on four significant days across three years of their lives. Alternating between hilarious and heartbreaking, the play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving.
Make an appointment at Truvy’s Salon for an uplifting reminder of the triumph of human strength over adversity and reminisce about the do-you-believe-it fashion and hairstyles of the 80s.
