Photo Coverage: First look at Performing Arts Creative Ensemble's CRIMES OF THE HEART

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.

Crimes of the Hears is written by Beth Henley and is directed by Douglas C. Shaffer. The cast includes: Lenny Magrath: Erin O'Donnell, Meg Magrath: Dana Ernest, Babe Botrelle: Lydia Simon, Chick Boyle: Karen Perta, Barnette Lloyd: Dustin Schwab, and Doc Porter: Erik Bobbitt.

Performances are November 15th thru 18th at the Columbus Dance Theatre, 592 E. Main St., Columbus, OH 43215. For tickets or more information, visit: https://pacecolumbus.com/
