Could the stranger have anything to do with her own dark past involving a stolen diamond and her dangerous ex-boyfriend Sam looking for revenge? Another male visitor soon appears and Olivia’s worst nightmare comes true.

Steel Magnolias

Steel Magnolias
Performances: Mon 22 May until Sat 27 May 2023


Written by Robert Harling

Directed by Vicki Lockey

Set in a small Louisiana town in the time of big hair (1980s), six women gather in Truvy’s beauty shop for gossip, friendship and support. These six characters find comfort in each other. Filled with hilarious repartee & a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in Act II, Shelby (who is diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realisation of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on their underlying strength and love which gives the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching. Harling’s script is hilarious, touching, life-affirming & a magnificent celebration of women’s friendships.
