Old resentments simmer and passions bubble up in the Magrath family kitchen in Hazelhurst, Mississippi, where three sisters have reunited for the first time in five years. Thirty-year-old Lenny has deferred her own dreams to take care of their cantankerous “Old Granddaddy,” who now is dying at the local hospital; Meg’s Hollywood singing career has failed; Babe is out on bail after shooting her husband; and their self-righteous cousin Chick is happy to point out where all of the sisters have gone wrong! In order to escape the past and move forward, each sister must come to terms with her own Crimes of the Heart. Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this Southern Gothic comedy makes the women’s journey of self-discovery both touching and hilarious!
