Set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the towns rich.
Filled with hilarious witty conversations and a few forward but humorously revealing verbal collisions, this play takes you from comedy to tragedy. The sudden realization of their mortality affects them all, but also draws on the underlying strength and love which gives the towns folk the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvellously amiable company in good times and bad.
