MINNEAPOLIS - In this deeply touching Southern Gothic comedy, "Crimes of the Heart," three young sisters reunite in their Mississippi hometown to await news of their hospitalized grandfather -- and that's just the start of their very bad day.

With emotional troubles in the past and immediate troubles with the law, each of the dysfunctional Magrath sisters is forced to face the consequences of her crimes of the heart.

Imaginative and hilarious, unpredictable and moving, this play is a contemporary classic, honoring playwright Beth Henley with both a Pulitzer Prize and a New York Drama Critics Circle Award -- and later becoming an Academy Award-nominated film starring Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange and Sissy Spacek.

The New York Post noted, "It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion that must carry all before it ... it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in theater to not see this play."
