The Concord Players
Alternatively hilarious and touching, Steel Magnolias is a beloved comedy-drama by Robert Harling which portrays the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. It reveals, over time, the depth of the strength and purposefulness of its unforgettable characters — ladies who are "as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel."
