PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies
who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new
assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the
outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to
the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad
mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a
raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter,
Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled
with witty repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal
collisions. These women, the "Steel Magnolias" draw on their underlying
strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special
quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable
company in good times and bad.
