About the Show

Written by Robert Harling
Directed by D. Lynn Meyers

Everyone's favorite ladies from Chinquapin, Louisiana, return in Robert Harling's award-winning stage comedy, offering audiences a hearty helping of love, laughter and tears. As six women gather in a beauty parlor over the period of two years to discuss everything from favorite recipes and local beauty queens to births and death, they find strength within themselves and comfort in each other's company.

Ovation Award best actress nominees Beth Grant (nominated for The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife at Zephyr Theatre) and Madison Dunaway (nominated for Agnes of God at International City Theatre) highlight this all-star ensemble cast, which includes TV veterans Kathryn Joosten (West Wing), Karen Valentine (Room 222 and Karen), Ruta Lee (1st & Ten) and Beth Anne Garrison.
