Description

CRIMES OF THE HEART tells the story of three sisters reuniting together after the youngest of the trio (Babe) shoots her husband and is on the verge of being sent to prison

CRIMES OF THE HEART tells the story of three sisters reuniting together after the youngest of the trio (Babe) shoots her husband and is on the verge of being sent to prison. The story takes place deep in the south in Hazlehurst, Mississippi. The writing in this play is superb. It captures the spirit of each of the young women splendidly. However, moving as the story is, it isn't quite poetical and thereby misses perfection.

Saw the play, read the script and saw the movie. This was written about my hometown where Beth used to visit her grandparents. I ordered this for our county tourism director. Beth is a delightful writer with a lot of Southern insight!

CRIMES OF THE HEART tells the story of three sisters reuniting together after the youngest of the trio (Babe) shoots her husband and is on the verge of being sent to prison. The story takes place deep in the south in Hazlehurst, Mississippi.

The writing in this play is superb. It captures the spirit of each of the young women splendidly. However, moving as the story is, it isn't quite poetical and thereby misses perfection.

Nevertheless, CRIMES OF THE HEART is an enjoyable piece of theatre displaying the daffy complexity of women seen through the lives of three sisters.

A wonderful view of dark humor in a small southern town with a cast of characters that many of us could recognize as our relatives. I read the play and then went to a performance. Outstanding

Loved the movie and my book club is talking about reading aloud a play so I got this in case we decide to follow through on this idea. It's a great movie for women in general and sisters in particular.
Enjoyable script. We will consider it for our next theatre season.
