Crimes of the Heart
  • Edinburgh Fringe

In 1950s Hazlehurst, Mississippi, the Mcgrath sisters have returned home. Lenny, the oldest sister is unmarried and facing dwindling marriage prospects; Meg, the middle sister, has returned after a failed stint in Hollywood and the youngest sister, Babe is out on bail after shooting her husband. As past resentments bubble to the surface, the sisters are forced to face the consequences of the various crimes of the heart they have committed. An example of black comedy at its finest, this is a comedic exploration of deceit, loneliness and ultimately what it means to be a family.
