Hopes, Dreams, and Regrets…three sisters resent, reminisce, and reconcile

Crimes of the Heart is a touching and inspiring story of 3 sisters and their reunion in Hazlehurst, Mississippi as the patriarch of the Magrath family spends his remaining hours in the local hospital. This Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award winner captures true family dynamics on the stage and lingers in audiences minds long after the curtain is drawn. Will these sisters be able to escape their past and seize the future?

"From time to time a play comes along that restores one's faith in our theatre…" —NY Magazine

"It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion that must carry all before it…it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in the theatre not to see this play." —NY Post.
