Auditions scheduled for second show in Tyrone Community Players season
Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Crimes of the Heart is a heartwarming, hilarious comedy/drama to be presented by the Tyrone Community Players on March 16 and 17 in the social hall of the Wesley United Methodist Church.
The scene of the show is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital.
Lenny, the eldest sister, is unmarried and facing diminishing matrimonial prospects, to her dismay. Meg, the second sister, is home after a failed attempt at a singing career on the West Coast. Then there is Babe, the youngest, who is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.
The cast is rounded out by two male characters and a female cousin who alternately love and hate the eccentric, wonderful and confusing behavior exhibited by the sisters.
