Beth Henley's masterpiece depicts a family in crisis with plenty of comedy and heartfelt tenderness.

The McGrath sisters find themselves back together in their Hazelhurst, Mississippi home after five years apart because the youngest sister, Babe, has shot her husband because she didn't like his looks.

As the family fights for Babe's life, old resentments, sibling rivalries, past romances, and new dramas crop up to make everything wonderfully complicated.

The play is directed by Joe Golden with scenic design by Michael Hartwell, costume design by Heidi Golden, lighting by Deborah Penrod. Stage management is by Chris Ullery, Amber Steele and Caitlin Kreuger. The cast includes Alyssa Martin, Justine Bushey, Hongmey Zhen, Amanda Richey, David Ketchum, and Brent Huston.
