CRIMES OF THE HEART by Beth Henley
Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, BETH HENLEY'S play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. An astonishing first play, initially presented by the Actors Theatre of Louisville, then Off-Broadway, and then on Broadway, where it established the author as a major voice in our theatre. "While this play overflows with infectious high spirits, it is also, unmistakably, the tale of a very troubled family. Such is Miss Henley's prodigious talent that she can serve us pain as though it were a piece of cake." —NY Times. "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 the theatre not to see this play." —NY Post. "From time to time a play comes along that restores one's faith in our theatre…" —NY Magazine.
Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award.
