Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Award, this warmhearted, irreverent, and brilliantly imaginative play examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. The setting is Hazelhurst, MS, where the Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of their failing grandfather, who is living out his last days at the local hospital. Lenny is the oldest, unmarried and lonely, Meg is running from a failed singing career in CA, and Babe is out on bail after shooting her husband in the stomach. Each has troubles, which are grave, yet they manage to find humor in every occasion, and in the end each learns she must escape the past in order to seize the future.
