Simply Theatre Presents – Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley
The MaGrath sisters are back together in their hometown of Hazlehurst, Mississippi for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, never left Hazlehurst — she is the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom as a singer in Los Angeles, but has, so far, only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. And Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for the shooting of her abusive husband, Zackery Botrelle. Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi sun, past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.
