Steel Magnolias, Week 1 – Theatre Louisiana College
September 20 - September 23
The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, 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, Ouiser (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); 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 moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, Shelby forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love.
