“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.” Set in the fictional Louisiana parish of Chinquapin, the women who regularly gather in Truvy’s beauty parlor are, as the title suggests, as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel. Filled with hilarious repartee and verbal lacerations, the play deepens when the spunky Shelby (who is diabetic) contradicts her doctor’s advice and risks pregnancy. Based on true family events of playwright Robert Harling, the play exemplifies the universal and unconditional strengths of sisterhood, resilience, and love.
