Bless your heart, what could be more important than family, friends and good hair? Welcome to Truvy's Beauty Salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana; where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. It s here that they bicker, share beauty tips and recipes, and swap more than an occasional bit of scandalous gossip. They also forge a bond of friendship that carries them through personal triumphs and tragedies. Just like magnolias, these southern women are delicate, beautiful and ultimately, resilient.
"A superb, funny, deeply moving play."

Steel Magnolias contains occasional strong language and deals frankly with death and grieving. This beautiful tribute to friendship, community and the power of the human spirit may be best suited to upper elementary students who are prepared for, and understand the concept of bereavement.
