Revolving around Truvy’s Beauty Parlor in a small parish in 1980’s Louisiana, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives intertwine. The show opens with everyone getting ready for a wedding. Some are getting their hair done while others are outside shooing the birds away with gunfire. “Just the sweetest thing,” Annelle Depuy Desoto (who may or may not be married because her marriage may not be legal) is introduced to Truvy’s customers as her new “glamour technician.” While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. As she says, “If you can’t find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me.” Filled with humor and heartbreak, these “Steel Magnolias” make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.
