A tragic comedy explores the tensions between the three Magrath sisters, Meg, Babe, and Lenny, who reunite at Old Granddaddy’s home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi. Babe has just shot her abusive husband. The three sisters were raised in a dysfunctional family with a penchant for ugly predicaments.

Earlier resentments come steaming back to life, as the sisters are forced to deal with past relationships and events, while coping with Babe’s current crisis. Each must face the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.”

Masque and Gown’s presentation, directed by Axis Fuksman-Kumpa ’17, brings Beth Henley’s masterpiece to the Bowdoin audience.

Tickets: Smith Union Information Desk (207-725-3375) beginning Oct 1, and immediately before the show at the Memorial Hall box office. Tickets are $3 for the general public, and $1 with a Bowdoin ID.
