OPENS FRIDAY! Crimes of the Heart, by Beth Henley
New Season Opens September 4 with the Pulitzer Prize Winner, Crimes of the Heart
The Studio is excited to open its new season with the American classic and Pulitzer Prize Winner, Crimes of the Heart, by Beth Henley!
In Hazlehurst, Mississippi, the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of their grandfather, who is living out his final hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried and facing diminishing marital prospects. Middle sister, Meg, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back at home after a failed singing career on the West Coast. Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband. Their troubles are both grave and laughable as, together, they try to escape the past and seize their future.
Directed by Brad Allen, The Studio production features members Dee Rich as Lenny, Debra Rich as Meg, Ashley Faulkner as Babe, Julie Lee as Chick Boyles, the sisters' cousin and Aaron Seever as Doc Porter, along with guest artist Joshua Vern as Barnette Lloyd.
A touching and consistently hilarious story that will linger in the mind long after the lights fade to black, Theatre Artists Studio presents Crimes of the Heart from September 4-20 at The Studio, located two blocks east of Tatum Blvd., and just north of Cactus Road on Paradise Village Parkway East, on the west side of the street.
