Synopsis: This Pulitzer-Prize winning tragicomedy centers on the three Magrath sisters (Lenny, Meg, and Babe) who are reunited in Hazelhurst, MS (circa 1974) as they await the news of their ailing grandfather while also dealing with the attempted murder committed by Babe against her brutish husband. Over the next two days, the family’s skeletons will be revealed, deep-seated resentments return to the surface, and tears will mix with laughter as the sisters work their way through the pains of life and love in the best way they can: with each other.
