In Beth Henley's Pulitzer Prize-winning Southern Gothic screwball comedy, three eccentric sisters in Hazlehurst, Mississippi are having what Babe, the youngest sister, calls a "bad day." She is out on bail, having just shot her husband. The middle sister, Meg, a would-be singing star, has retreated from Hollywood by way of a psychiatric ward and Lenny, the eldest sister, is facing her 30th birthday with no romantic prospects. Past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with her own "crimes of the heart." Touching and tragic, Crimes of the Heart is a darkly comic family feud of epic proportions.
