Set in the 1980s in Truvy’s hair salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, this play will warm your heart and leave you feeling cosy and content right to the very end. Directed by Valerie Miller, Steel Magnolias follows the trials and tribulations of the six friends over three years. The soul of the play focuses on the loving companionship and solidarity the six women have between them. These Southern gals are there for each other as they sling witty sayings and tease each other.
Imagine you are waking up in the bridal suite of a gracious country-house hotel somewhere outside London. Imagine you are the bridegroom, due to be married that very day. Imagine that you roll over and find an attractive woman in bed beside you – but it is not your fiancé! You now have a perfect picture of the opening scene of a Perfect Wedding by Robin Hawdon, the new production at Arts Theatre Cronulla.
