Steel Magnolias

Directed by James Cada


by Robert Harling

Based on his own experience growing up in rural Natchitoches, Louisiana, Robert Harling’s landmark play Steel Magnolias explores the bonds between six women at a beauty salon. Combining light-hearted comedy and quirky characters with a serious, heart-rending storyline, Steel Magnolias has been translated into seventeen languages and has been produced across the world.

As the title suggests, "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel".  The play's enduring relevancy likely stems from a combination of its strong female characters, its themes of the power of sisterhood, and its witty, memorable script.
