Renowned playwright and director Theresa Rebeck (Alley’s Fool, All My Sons) is returning to Houston to direct an all-local cast performing Crimes of the Heart at the Alley Theatre. Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Beth Henley’s first professionally produced play brings audiences to the Mississippi home of the Magrath sisters.
Babe has just shot her husband because she didn't like his looks. This brings middle sister Meg back to town from Los Angeles, where she is unsuccessfully pursuing a music career. And poor Lenny, everyone has forgotten her birthday! Warm-hearted, irreverent, and imaginative, Crimes of the Heart teems with humanity as the sisters forgive the past, face the present, and embrace the future.
The Crimes of the Heart cast is comprised of all local actors.
