The Friends University Drama Department will present the modern classic "Steel Magnolias" at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18-20 and at 3 p.m. Nov. 21 in the Cornerstone Studio Theatre in the Riney Fine Arts Center.
This hilarious but deeply moving play by Robert Harling presents a group of gossipy Louisiana ladies who are joined by moments shared in a small-town beauty parlor but who are also more deeply connected to one another than they are aware. Despite the seeming casualness of their relationships and tolerance of one another’s idiosyncrasies, serious events and mortality drive them closer together. Their charming eccentricities, spicy humor and individual passions create intense confrontations but further combine to deepen their understanding, need and love for one another. (Presented by special arrangements with Dramatists Play Service, New York, NY.)
All tickets are $5 and may be reserved through the Friends University Fine Arts Office or purchased at the door.
