Set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done, "Steel Magnolias" is filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions. Moving toward tragedy, the young, beautiful, but diabetic Shelby risks pregnancy and her life. The sudden realization of her mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
