Robert Hartling’s play about his mother and his sister, and their intimate friendships with the ladies who frequent Truvy Jones’ beauty parlor in Chinquapin, Louisiana, has become one of the most popular and frequently performed plays in the history of American Regional Theatre.
Since every woman who is “anybody” in Chinquapin comes to Truvy’s we meet the town’s most colorful and important ladies. Ouiser is the town’s loveable curmudgeon (“I’m not crazy! I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years!”). Miss Clairee is a millionare who owns the local radio station. M’Lynn is a very modern career woman and Shelby (her daughter) is (by general consensus) the prettiest girl in town.
The ways in which these women encourage and support each other through difficult and often challenging times truly define what it means to be – not simply a neighbor – but a friend.
STEEL MAGNOLIAS is a heartwarming reminder that our friends are the family we choose.
