In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

STEEL MAGNOLIAS was a wonderful play. All the characters were real characters! The storyline, the acting, the sets, the costumes ... everything was excellent. You really got drawn into the characters' lives. The ending was sad, yet uplifting. ...continued

On the morning of her wedding day, Shelby Eatenton, her mother and her mother’s outrageous friends – the lovable curmudgeon Ouiser and small-town grande dame Clairee – gather in Truvy’s small town Louisiana beauty parlor to celebrate her future. Filled with humor and heartbreak, these “steel magnolias” make us laugh and cry, and finally admire their strength as they face life’s uncertainties with courage and humor. Two of the brightest lights in Boston theatre, Paula Plum and Kathy St.George, join together to bring this beloved story to life.
