In April, 8th to 17th, the play is “Crimes of the Heart” written by Beth Henley and directed by Geoff Brittain. 

This tragic comedy relates the story of the three Magrath sisters who are back together in their hometown of Hazelhurst, Mississippi for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, never left Hazelhurst – she is the carer of the sisters’ cantankerous old granddaddy. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom as a singer in Los Angeles, but has, so far, only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. And Babe, the youngest, has been arrested for the shooting of her abusive husband, Zachary Bottrelle. Under the scorching heat or the Mississippi sun past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart”.

The play won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best play.

In June the play is “We’ll Always Have Paris”

A feel-good play with laughter and tears, the promise of romance, friendship and anger and the advantages and disadvantages of growing old.

Three women of a “certain age” gravitate to Paris enjoying everything Paris has to offer – wine, food, shopping, culture – and, of course, men.
