Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana is where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to marry a “good ole boy.”
The play, a woman’s play in the best sense of the word, is alternately hilarious and touching.
Its examination of female bonding and the lasting friendships it can create is part of the play’s enduring appeal.

This is the very popular story of two very prim, proper, kind-hearted and devout spinster sisters who make it their life’s work to comfort and alleviate the suffering of lonely old gentlemen. Add in a nephew who works as a drama critic, a nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, and another nephew who has returned home with revenge on his mind, and you have a hilarious comedy about good people trying to do good deeds, and bad people doing very bad deeds indeed.
