Event Notes


The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters - Lenny, Meg and Babe - have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helplessly falling in love with her. A story about escaping the past in search of a future will linger long after the curtain has descended.
