About the Show

Welcome to Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, the go-to spot for the town’s most intriguing women. Truvy, the sharp-tongued and witty salon owner, dishes out both style and sage advice with the help of her new assistant, Annelle, who’s still figuring out her marital status. The salon’s regulars include Ouiser, the town’s grumpy curmudgeon; Miss Clairee, a quirky millionaire with a sweet tooth; and M’Lynn, the local socialite whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry the quintessential “good ole boy.”

The air is filled with lively banter, playful jabs, and heartwarming moments. But as Shelby, the vivacious bride-to-be who has diabetes, chooses to risk pregnancy, the group’s laughter turns to tears, reminding everyone of life’s fragility. This poignant shift reveals the strength and love at the heart of the play, making these women unforgettable companions through both the highs and lows. With a perfect balance of humor and heart, this story is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Playwright Robert Harling
