Photo Flash: CRIMES OF THE HEART Opens Tonight at International City Theatre
Meg just left a man. Lenny never had a man. Babe just shot a man. Luke Yankee directs a revival of Crimes of the Heart, the Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle Award-winning comic drama by Beth Henley, for a June 9 opening at International City Theatre. Two low-priced previews take place on June 7 and June 8.

Set in Hazlehurst, Mississippi in 1974, Crimes of the Heart tells the story of the three Magrath sisters. Lenny (Jennifer Cannon, most recently seen at ICT as Abigail in Abigail/1702), the oldest, is unmarried and facing diminishing marital prospects. Middle sister Meg (Robin Long) has just returned from the West Coast after a failed attempt at a singing career. And youngest sister Babe (Megan Gainey) has just been bailed out of jail after shooting her husband in the stomach. Their priggish and insufferable cousin Chick (Alexandra Wright) seems only too pleased to stir up gossip and rehash old family scandals. Into this disturbing but hilarious world of dysfunction comes Barnette (Wallace Angus Bruce, previously seen in ICT Productions of Heir Apparent and End of the Rainbow), an awkward young lawyer who hopes to rescue Babe from her legal predicament. Rounding out the group is Doc Porter (James Louis Wagner), Meg's former flame whom she ditched after a brief tryst five years earlier during Hurricane Camille.
