Crimes of the Heart Premieres at Bunbury Theatre March 31-April 17

 AREA ARTISTS UNITE FOR CELEBRATION OF  30TH ANNIVERSARY OF “CRIMES OF THE HEART” WINNING THE PULITZER PRIZEPLAY SCHEDULED AT BUNBURY THEATRE MARCH 31-APRIL 17

Area theatre artists are coming together in celebration of the 30th anniversary of “Crimes of the Heart” winning the 1981 Pulitzer Prize. The play, by Beth Henley, premiered at Actor’s Theatre Louisville (ATL) before going on to Broadway.
Bunbury Theatre will present “Crimes of the Heart,” March 31-April 17.  
 
The play is set in 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 oldest sister, is unmarried at 30 and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.

Their troubles are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future.
