Crimes of the Heart @ Fort Findlay Playhouse | Findlay | Ohio | United States

A theatre production by Fort Findlay Playhouse for “Crimes of the Heart.”  Tickets go on sale to the public on Monday of the week prior to opening night.  Tickets can be purchased through The Arts Partnership at 618 South Main Street in Findlay or by calling 419-422-4624.  The doors will open 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Synopsis: The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.
