Crimes of the Heart
by Beth Henley

     Set in the sweltering backdrop of Hazlehurst Mississippi, the Magrath sisters are still grieving the loss of their mother, who took her own life and the life of their family cat. Lenny is faced with the onset of her 30th year while still single and lacking any direction in her life. Meg, having returned to Hazlehurst, is not quite the famous singer she always thought she would be and Babe’s new marriage has ended in a literal hail of gunfire. Though each sister is drowning in a mess of their own, they somehow still manage to create a bond and support system that may be strong enough to hold their whirlwind of a family together.

Deborah Meeks, in her second production as director speaks of the richness of what CRIMES OF THE HEART offers. “I think the overall idea of the play is multi-faceted. Yes, it is about those “crimes of the heart” that when left unattended send us on a downward spiral of self-destruction. But it is also, most certainly, about overcoming. It is about identity and self-worth. It is about relationships and what binds us together.”
