The story centers on longtime friends in the small town of Chinquapin, Louisiana. The friends fill Truvy’s hair salon with laughter, gossip, and tears. Truvy’s new assistant Annelle, sociable M’Lynn, and her pretty daughter bride-to-be Shelby, as well as the hysterical bickering Ouiser and Clairee, support each other with love, laughter and beauty products. As hair is dried, dyed, and styled, women’s lives unfold and show the meaning of true friendship.

Steel Magnolias is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
