The play is set at Truvy's Beauty Salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where "the hair is big and the gossip is juicy. While their coifs are perfected and daily lives debated, six distinctly different women forge a unique bond of sisterhood — one that even when put to the test, only grows stronger."

Elaine Hendrix and Lucy DeVito complete the cast as Annelle and Truvy.
