Steel Magnolias

By Robert Harling

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 assistant, Annelle, the wisecracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser; an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee; and the local social leader, M’lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic, but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy, when Shelby, a diabetic, risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength–and love–which give the play, and it’s characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
