Steel Magnolias

Written by Robert Harling
Directed by Elizabeth Angelozzi

Steel Magnolias is set over the span of 3 years and tells the story of a group of friends, neighbors, and clients of hairstylist, Truvy Jones.  The beginning of the play focuses on young Shelby who is preparing for her upcoming wedding.  As Shelby’s story progresses, we learn about her struggles with Type 1 diabetes, and her mother’s concern about her leaving the nest and starting a family of her own.  Although the ladies argue and tease each other, their friendship and sense of community holds them together. We see this at various points of crisis during the play and, ultimately, at the end when Shelby decision to go against her doctor’s orders and have a child has dire consequences.
