About CRIMES OF THE HEART
Set in the Magrath family kitchen in their hometown of Hazelhurst, Mississippi, the action unfolds during what the youngest sister, 24-year-old Babe, calls ''a bad day.'' Babe is out on bail, having just shot her husband in the stomach. Her 27-year-old sister Meg, a would-be singing star, has retreated from Hollywood by way of a psychiatric ward. Lenny, the eldest Magrath, is facing her 30th birthday with a ''shrunken ovary'' and no romantic prospects. As if this weren't enough, Old Granddaddy, the family patriarch, is in the hospital with ''blood vessels popping in his brain.'' The play is the story of how the three sisters escape the past to seize the future—in a telling so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended. The play won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.
