Crimes of the Heart


By Beth Henley 

In this 1981 Pulitzer Prize winner, three sisters – one unmarried, one a failed singer, and one out on bail for shooting her husband – gather awaiting news of their dying grandfather.  Their troubles, which are grave but somehow comical, are highlighted by the other colorful characters of Hazlehurst, Mississippi.  All ends on a joyful note as the sisters reunite. 

Performances will be held in the Black Box Theatre.  No reserved seats.  All general seating.  Tickets sales will begin on December 20, 2019.
