Francis Howell Limelight Theatre To Present "Crimes Of The Heart"
After weeks of planning and rehearsals the Francis Howell Limelight Theatre is set to present their spring production "Crimes of the Heart." The production will run April 6 - 8 in the Francis Howell High School Auditorium. Tickets are just $5 at the door. Students, staff, parents and fans will not want to miss this Pulitzer Prize winning play. Below you can find a brief synopsis of the play as well as performance times. Good luck to the cast and crew!
The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended. – Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
April 6 - 7:00pm
April 7 - 7:00pm
April 8 - 1:00pm & 7:00pm
(Doors open 30 minutes before performance times)
