Oct 4 – 8, 2022 at the Sid Williams Theatre
Set in Chinquapin, Louisiana in 1986, this iconic play is a tale of love, loss and friendship.
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 do-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. Packed with 1980’s nostalgia and memorable
one-liners, Steel Magnolias is a classic play that continues to speak to audiences all over the world about
hope and love.
