CRIMES OF THE HEART
by Beth Henley
The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters 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 helpless not to fall in love with her. Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. “From time to time a play comes along that restores one’s faith in our theatre…” —NY Magazine.
