A heart-warming comedy!
“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion,” says Truvy, the sassy hairdresser and owner of her own salon in Chinquapin Parish, the setting for one of America’s favorite comedies. This salon is where six wonderful (and often wacky) Southern women come not only to get their hair done, but also to share stories, recipes, triumphs, and loss. Joining Truvy are Annelle (the wayward young woman who may or may not be married), Clairee (the former mayor’s wife), Ouiser (who claims she is not crazy; she’s just been in a very bad mood for forty years), M’Lynn (the stalwart center of the group), and Shelby (M’Lynn’s daughter, preparing for her wedding day). A delightful and heart-touching comedy about the bonds that hold us together, Steel Magnolias will have you, too, laughing through tears.
