Carroll College Theatre is proud to announce our 2014-15 Season!
Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley. Directed by Julia Porter, MA and BA Carroll 2005. The three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing prospects; Meg, the middle sister, is back after a failed singing career; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave, and yet, hilarious, are highlighted by their cousin, Chick, and by the young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while falling in love with her. In the end, the play is the story of how they all escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.
