The Peterborough Players Present STEEL MAGNOLIAS 2/15-26
by BWW News Desk - Feb 6, 2017

An American classic that is popular around the world (not to mention the basis for the award-winning film of the same name), Steel Magnolias celebrates the bond of female companionship. Six strong Southern women gather weekly at Truvy's beauty shop, where all the ladies who are anybody go to have their hair done. Full of heart and humor, the play is a funny and moving story of love, loss, and enduring friendship.  Playwright Robert Harling said "…while gorgeous, magnolias are fragile and bruise easily-qualities often attributed to Southern women.

But underneath, they possess a tensile strength stronger than anything I could ever muster." (more...)
