By Beth Henley
Directed by Vik Sivalingam

Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize winning dark comedy, Crimes of the Heart, is a little bit Chekhov and a little bit Eudora Welty. It tells a twangy story of three Mississippi sisters loving, feuding and fussing through a very bad day.

Babe has just shot her husband; Meg is fresh from a Hollywood psychiatric ward; and poor Lenny celebrates her 30th birthday alone in the kitchen by sticking a candle in a cookie and making wish after desperate wish…and their horse has just been hit by lightning.

Henley’s brilliant dark comedy was called “A pure vein of Southern gothic humor” by The New York Times.
