The Tipping Point Theatre Presents CRIMES OF THE HEART, thru 6/25


The Tipping Point Theatre presents its final show of their All-American season, CRIMES OF THE HEART, now through June 25, 2011. This black comedy could have been ripped from a tabloid headline, yet is ultimately about the importance of sisterhood.  Henley's comic-tragic look at family strife won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1981 New York Drama Critics' Award for Best American Play.

The drama begins when Babe's sisters, Meg and Lenny - who have issues of their own - join her at their Old Granddaddy's home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi to cope with this latest disruption of their dysfunctional lives.  As the story unfolds, old resentments come out, quirky relatives appear and each sister is forced to face the consequences of the ‘crimes of the heart' she has committed. The result is a funny journey through their struggles, their rivalries and ultimately, their bonds of sisterhood.

CRIMES OF THE HEART runs through June 25th at The Tipping Point Theatre, and is directed by Kate Peckham. It stars Seth Amadei, Hallie B. Bard, Sonja Marquis, Maggie Meyer, Ty Mitchell, and Inga R. Wilson.

The curtain rises at 8:00 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 3:00 p.m. Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. The theater is located at 361 E. Cady St. Tickets are $28 to $30 for adults and $26 to $28 for students and senior citizens and can be reserved by calling the box office at 248-347-0003.
