Steel Magnolias is an iconic play that continues to speak to audiences all over the world about hope, love, loss, and friendship.

Set in Chinquapin, Louisiana in 1986, we follow the lives of six southern women who come together in Truvy’s Exclusive Beauty Parlour. Full of wise-cracking repartee, the women are witty, intelligent and sometimes slightly crazy. Annelle, who’s not sure if she is still married, is the eager new assistant to the outspoken romantic Truvy who dispenses shampoo and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon and dog-loving Ouiser, newly widowed millionaire Miss Clairee and classic Southern mother M’Lynn, whose beautiful daughter Shelby (a diabetic) is about to get married. Opening on Shelby’s wedding day, the story moves toward tragedy when she risks pregnancy. The beauty and fragility of her life has a profound effect on all the women, and their underlying strengths of love and friendship make this play truly touching to behold.
