A Studio play by Robert Harling
"Sometimes laughter is a matter of life and death." Broadway's slice-of-life comedy drama may be the funniest story ever to make you cry. It explores the secrets, joys, sorrows, fears and loves of a group of southern women who exchange gossip in their local beauty parlor. The women, fragile as magnolia blossoms, are tough as steel as they share life's moments, from the euphoric to the tragic, all with beautifully coiffed hair.
