For the fourth production of its 31st Season, the Lemon Bay Playhouse will present Crimes of the Heart, written by Beth Henley.  This comedy, directed by Ron Bupp, will open on January 17 and run through February 11, 2018.

The three MaGrath sisters are back together in their hometown of Hazelhurst, Mississippi for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, never left Hazelhurst.  Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom as a singer in Los Angeles, but that happiness has eluded her. And Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for allegedly shooting her abusive husband. Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi sun, past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.”

"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.
