Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana is where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to marry a “good ole boy.”
The play, a woman’s play in the best sense of the word, is alternately hilarious and touching. Its examination of female bonding and the lasting friendships it can create is part of the play’s enduring appeal.
A Modern Classic!
