Archives - Steel Magnolias
by Robert Harling
Directed by David Thompson
Saturday 28th March – Saturday 4th April 1992 in the Auditorium
First produced in New York in 1987, Steel Magnolias opened at the Lyric Theatre in 1989. Just released for amateur production, the Barn will be one of the first companies to present this humorous and moving play.
Set in small town America, the play centres around the lives of six women who meet in Truvy’s beauty parlour. Over a three year period Clairee, Ouiser, M’Lynn and Shelby, Truvy’s regular clients, and Annelle, her assistant, share their good and bad fortune, providing support for one another through birth, marriage and death.
This warmhearted and sparkling comedy is, above all else, about the strength and purposefulness of some very real characters.
Much to be enjoyed but bring a handkerchief!
Part of the Barn’s 1991/1992 season and a festival entry
